On February 21, Hussein Syed, Chief Information Security Officer at Barnabas Health System, and Ladi Adefala, Senior Security Strategist at Fortinet, led a roundtable discussion at HIMSS17 about the evolving challenges of securing the next-generation healthcare enterprise.

The session was geared toward providing attendees with information around the current threats targeting the healthcare industry, how organizations can align security to the progressive business model, and the emerging trends in security practices that are protecting organizations and thwarting attacks.
