Healthcare Informatics: Cybersecurity threats continue to grow by the day in U.S. healthcare, alarming patient care organization leaders, and compelling healthcare IT leaders to step up their cybersecurity efforts. That subject, the mushrooming of cyber threats, was top of mind on Thursday in San Jose, California, during a panel discussion on the topic at the Health IT Summit in San Jose, being held at the Westin San Jose in downtown San Jose.
The discussion, under the title “A Deeper Dive: Understanding and Preventing the Next Generation of Cyber Threats,” was moderated by Tom Andriola, vice president and CIO of the University of California Health. He was joined by Rao Mikkilineni, Ph.D., a professor of IT security at Golden Gate University; Ari Entin, CIO at Natividad Medical Center; M.K. Palmore, an assistant agent in charge in the San Francisco field office of the FBI; and Rich Campagna, senior vice president of products and marketing at Bitglass.
