the 4th annual Cyber Security Conference for Executives
We continue our coverage of the Cyber Security Conference for Executives presented Tuesday at the Johns Hopkins University by the Johns Hopkins Information Security Institute and COMPASS Cyber Security.
Stephanie Reel (CIO, Johns Hopkins University Health Systems) brought the perspective of a healthcare organization to the discussion. She claimed that healthcare has surpassed financial services as the most-targeted sector. In some ways its vulnerabilities have been increased by its modernization. Unification and aggregation of data have exposed the sector to "unintentional negligence among the players." That unification is striking: about 60% of patient data in the United States is held by a single vendor.
We'll have more on these issues, and on other topics discussed, as we wrap up our coverage tomorrow.
