5:20 PM Advocating for Your Cybersecurity Initiatives & Overcoming Budgetary Shortfalls

Unfortunately, CISO’s often struggle to gain adequate funding to support a truly offensive cybersecurity posture. Both the traditionally tight profit margins within the healthcare space and focus on investment in novel, bleeding-edge clinical technology often take precedent in the healthcare space, leaving CISO’s with a unique challenge when it comes to funding improvements in terms of cyber hygiene. 

 Offer your experience and insights concerning: 

  • evaluating which legacy systems are most vulnerable and apt for replacement
  • strategies to perform patching or other necessary system updates while minimizing financial and clinical impact
  • successful communication strategies that help non-experts better understand the intrinsic connection between healthy cyber hygiene and improved financial and clinical outcomes
