Welcome to Code Red, HIMSS’s new health IT cybersecurity podcast. Code Red focuses on cybersecurity challenges facing health care today & tomorrow, featuring the voices of the people on the front lines. The goal of the podcast is to explore the interplay between the people, processes & technologies that make up an organization’s cybersecurity posture from both a leadership & skills-based perspective. In this August update episode, we will explore the right skills needed for Chief Information Security Officers from two thought leaders in health care security.
