How can health systems protect themselves from the increasing threat of data breaches?
Dominic Kalvelis, Director of Information Security at VirtualHealth, joins us today to discuss the ongoing importance of cybersecurity for health care organizations. He explains why modern health systems are so vulnerable to information security threats, especially as they transition from paper-based systems to digital patient records, and how the security risks entail more than just revenue and reputation loss for the organization. Dominic also walks us through the steps of how to keep patient information safe, from ensuring secure software development, to developing and maintaining best practices in staff training and information security.
Thank you for tuning in!
