“Today our clients deliver care in a connected and digital way, a revolution that has contributed to safer and more efficient care. With these technological advancements, it’s essential that every health system have robust digital security strategies,” said Jay Savaiano, Senior Director, Security Solutions, Cerner. “The goal of our work with Cybereason is to help our clients minimize some of the complexity associated with enterprise security, while building their defenses, so that they can continue to prepare for future advancements and innovations that come next in care delivery.”
