The healthcare industry is the recipient of numerous innovations both scientific and technical and when they converge, they can both help patients and also put them at risk. Protecting patient data and the networks that carry that information requires a knowledgeable team to help organizations keep current on and adhere to government regulations, manage network security, create comprehensive policies, and effectively respond to incidents.
