HIMSSCast: Cybersecurity priorities from the HITRUST expert

One of the most important aspects of running a healthcare provider organization today is cybersecurity. And that is the subject of this latest HIMSSCast podcast.

The special guest is Robert Booker, chief strategy officer at the Health Information Trust Alliance, or HITRUST, following his retirement from over 30 years as a cybersecurity leader and technology professional.

Prior to HITRUST, Robert spent 13 years as the chief information security officer for a Fortune 10 company dedicated to the healthcare industry.

  • What will be the biggest challenge for organizations trying to meet adequate security levels and expectations? How do they know where to start?
