Case Study: SECURITY VENDOR MANAGEMENT AT A HEALTH SYSTEM

If a “health system” is defined as a provider organization having more than one hospital location, we will inevitably discover that security concerns are far greater than if securing a single facility.

In any “system” the different hospitals will have unique IT environments with different network designs, application profiles, biomedical devices, and unique customer bases.  Security products and services will likely have been purchased on a “best-of-breed” basis over time.  This results in varying approaches to maintain an adequate security posture across the system.
