Cybersecurity Increasingly Important in Healthcare as Technology Evolves

Healthcare is increasingly digital, which means cybersecurity is one of its greatest business risks. How are companies responding?

Cybersecurity is a challenge for every business and industry, including healthcare.

Joey Johnson, Chief Information Security Officer at Premise Health, confronts this challenge every day. He works with organizations in a wide array of industries across the U.S. to ensure electronic health records, billing information, and other health data from their employees and members stays safe.
