Code Red: HIMSS' Cybersecurity Podcast

Episode #6: The Financial Implications of Cybersecurity


Let’s accept the fact that we want to feel secure in some way, whether it is secure in our jobs, our relationships, or our personal safety and wellbeing.  We want the best for our families, our business endeavors or, as in healthcare, for the other people for whom we have some degree of responsibility.  But how do you place a value on the effort we make to create a secure environment?  


In this episode of Code Red, we talk with Fred Cox, Director of Information Security at Varian Medical Systems about the financial implications of cybersecurity, including direct and indirect costs of security, the idea of table stakes and behavior analytics, and at which point the concept of cybersecurity’s ROI can effectively be considered.
