In the care sector, strong security strategy remains critical to keeping sensitive patient information safe from prying eyes. But often, protecting data and systems is easier said than done.

Open communication is key to bridging the understanding gap and paving the way for a proactive, comprehensive security approach that empowers delivery of quality care. That means technical and nontechnical stakeholders must come together to explore their organization’s security needs, goals and challenges from all sides.
