Episode 22: Patch Management in Healthcare
With cybersecurity attacks on the rise in healthcare and a growing appreciation for the threats posed to patients, patch management is more important than ever—yet it remains a challenge for most hospitals. Why? "I don't think there's any other industry that has such a diversity of different devices from different manufacturers run in an environment where the pieces are so dependent on each other. That makes it difficult to, for example, take one device down, patch it and reboot it without affecting other devices" said Axel Wirth a distinguished technical architect for Symantec Corporation and a member of the BI&T Editorial Board. A cybersecurity expert, Wirth shares his tips for patch management and his "defense in depth"; framework that he believes all healthcare facilities should adopt. This podcast is sponsored by Nuvolo.
