TYSONS CORNER, VA April 10, 2015 — Executive Mosaic — ExecutiveBiz covered Thursday Deloitte advisor and consultant Russ Rudish’s proposed strategies for healthcare information technology providers looking to strengthen their infrastructure against cyber attacks.
According to Rudish, the industry must strive to have a risk-based plan, noting that vulnerabilities could often be found built into the technology.
He urged organizations to be open to threat information sharing, periodically review their risk assessment plans and encourage senior management involvement.
“Preparing for potential cyber threats isn’t as easy as locking a cellphone with a passcode or setting a car alarm with the push of a button, ” Rudish wrote in a March 18 blog post on the Deloitte website.
“But companies that manage cyber risk more strategically – in a secure, vigilant and resilient way – could be in a better position to significantly limit damage by quickly detecting and dealing with any compromise, ” he concluded.
