Changing Tires While the Bus is Moving: Maintaining Data Security and Compliance While Digitally Transforming

Healthcare IT is digitally transforming at light-speed; moving data to the cloud, big data lakes, and expanding the use of IoT devices. Often the infrastructure for these capabilities reside with third parties, which further complicates the ability to prove compliance to regulators and to secure ePHI data. The yearly Thales Data Threat Report trends your peers' greatest security challenges and investment priorities - and the results around securing digital transformation may shock you. This session will also offer an overview of techniques that can be efficiently deployed to control and secure sensitive data as it is migrated to 3rd party infrastructures.

The Importance of Engaging CISOs in Digital Transformation

The digital transformation challenge is significant for all, but CIOs need to understand the importance of engaging their CISO as well. Capturing IoT data from capital assets is a challenge on its own; however, many also struggle with the workforce's preference for entrenched processes as well as the executive team's expertise for managing physical assets, which is contrasted by their discomfort with digital transformation.

Pre-market challenges:

  1. Insecure product development: 
  2. Lax FDA approval process especially for patient safety devices with internet connectivity
Post-market challenges:
  1. Ineffective procurement processes: 
  2. Lack of central management and real time visibility

Navigating Security & Risk in a Changing IT Landscape

Agile, DevOps, containers, microservices and the cloud are all seeing increased adoption across the enterprise. But, while there are valid business reasons to embrace these new models, there is potential risk in implementation. Is this change necessary? If so, how can this change be accommodated effectively, safely? This session will cover some common elements of the risk of change - and of not changing - and suggest approaches to minimize risk as you adopt these new technologies.

Takeaways:

  1. The IT Landscape will continue to change leading to new processes, new technologies and new "standard" ways of doing IT business
  2. This changing Landscape will present security challenges where you will need to balance the "pain of same" vs the "pain of change"

Becoming More Decentralized

Today, increased centralization has put the power and trust into the hands of the few big players. This, of course, raises many security concerns. The risk of disruptions and undesirable outcomes increases as centralization opens the door to exclusive possession or control of commodities and services. As a result, technologies like Blockchain implemented to create decentralized alternatives as they move computing resources away from centralized servers. 

Takeaways:

  1. Evaluating the risks of centralization on availability, confidentiality and resiliency
  2. Exploring decentralized technologies like Blockchain and edge computing that offer visibility as well as enhanced security for your organization
  3. Understand the fact or fictionalization of developing AI strategies and the cause for concern for decentralized AI models

What's the Next Stop On the Transformation Journey?

Our Governing Board will summarize the learnings from the day and discuss the path forward for building an ongoing community of CISOs where common issues can be addressed and success stories can be shared.

Takeaways:

  1. Building an ongoing community with your peers can be an invaluable resource for tackling the digital transformation projects ahead of you
  2. Sharing stories of success (and failures) is not reserved to a one-day CISO Summit, but should be shared on a regular basis with your peers
