Healthcare providers have some of the most complicated environments with a multitude of systems, users and regulatory mandates. And often, according Barnabas Health CISO Hussein Syed, this leads to one of the biggest challenges, which is a misunderstood environment. 

There concerns over Personally Identifiable Information (PII), as well as maintaining compliance with Payment Card Industry (PCI) mandates as healthcare providers generally take credit cards. 

Further, because of the growing Internet of Medical Things with various equipment now networked, data leakage becomes a greater concern. And compounding this is are third party providers, from doctors to billing companies, working with healthcare providers, making security even more difficult. 

As you'll hear from Hussein Syed as he speaks with Security Current's Vic Wheatman while at RSA it is a balancing act to provide access while ensuring security. They speak about these and other issues.
