It’s Cybersecurity Awareness Month! In healthcare, safeguarding cybersecurity is safeguarding patients. Whether it’s a hospital, health system, physician group, or a trusted digital health partner, when healthcare is attacked, patients are at risk.
Join us all month as we feature some of healthcare’s fiercest defenders. They’re leaders from across the ecosystem fighting to protect data, systems, and care delivery. Join us to hear how they started, why they chose healthcare, and their advice for other leaders in their spaces.
Today’s featured healthcare defender is Michael Bray, CISO for Vancouver Clinic. Mike got an interesting start to his career, and in what turned into a delightful Star Wars analogy, Mike and I discussed how scary the issues in healthcare cybersecurity can be. Still, Mike says it’s important for healthcare leaders to be really careful about how much of that negativity and defeatism they allow to soak in.
“The war isn’t over, and we’ll win the war at some point.”
I hope you enjoy my conversation with Mike.
Cybersecurity is patient safety. Do your part, be a healthcare defender.
