University of Houston professor Brené Brown understands the strength that comes from embracing our vulnerabilities. “When we spend our lives”, Brown says, “waiting until we’re perfect or bulletproof before we walk into the arena, we ultimately sacrifice relationships and opportunities that may not be recoverable, we squander our precious time, and we turn our backs on our gifts, those unique contributions that only we can make. Perfect and bulletproof are seductive, but they don’t exist in the human experience.”

In an age of ubiquitous cybersecurity threats, it takes a strong organization to embrace its vulnerabilities.  To understand that true strength comes from the willingness to examine and reexamine our weaknesses.  To lead by the need to learn about ourselves.  To lead by the need to share with others.  

Welcome HIMSS’s new health IT cybersecurity podcast, Code Red. 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 today’s episode, we will discuss how ARcare, a Davies award recipient and EMRAM Stage 7 non-profit that provides medical and dental care to residents in rural Arkansas responded to a recent cybersecurity breach with Greg Wolverton, CIO of ARcare and Chair of the HIMSS User Experience committee.
