COULD YOU USE MORE INFORMATION SECURITY LEADERSHIP OR EXPERTISE— BUT LACK THE BUDGET?
According to Cisco’s 2015 Annual Security Report, “Businesses with a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) in place recorded the highest levels of confidence in their security stance, both in terms of optimization and clarity.” That confidence is essential when it comes to healthcare information security. But, for many small to mid-sized hospitals it may be difficult to justify the expense of a full-time CISO. Additionally, with the recognized shortage of an estimated 300,000 to one million vacant cybersecurity jobs, the talent pool may not be available to retain in a qualified Healthcare CISO.
