Reducing Complexity in Healthcare IT

DigiCert's Nelson on Prioritizing Security Efforts for Maximum Impact
Mike Nelson, vice president of digital trust, DigiCert

Rapid expansion of telehealth services and the shift to remote work arrangements have introduced new vulnerabilities as these systems often rely on external networks that need security. At the same time, greater network complexity is making it more challenging for IT teams to monitor and secure all endpoints effectively.

From hospitals to device makers and insurance providers, the healthcare industry sits between its customers and the threats that could exploit private data and undermine their health. With risk at an all-time high, healthcare delivery organizations must be the stewards of digital trust for their patients, employees and connected network of devices.

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group, Mike Nelson, vice president of digital trust at DigiCert, discussed:

  • The growing complexity of healthcare IT environments;
  • Where healthcare entities struggle most to maintain cybersecurity;
  • How to prioritize security efforts to make the biggest impact.

Nelson oversees strategic market development for all products, including Device Trust, Software and Content Trust, Enterprise Trust, and Trust Lifecycle Manager. He is dedicated to promoting patient safety and preventing disruptions to the delivery of care. Before DigiCert, Nelson spent his career in healthcare IT, including time at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, GE Healthcare and Leavitt Partners. He frequently consults with organizations, contributes to media reports and speaks at industry conferences about the risks of connected technology and what can be done to improve the security of these systems.

From patients to payers, from data to devices, digital trust is a must for the medical world. Learn how DigiCert is securing every corner of the healthcare ecosystem.
