This is one of the most interesting and scary interviews we’ve ever done. Tony Giandomenico is a security expert at Fortinet. In this interview we cover a lot of ground with Tony around healthcare IT security and medical device security. We talk about the impact of breaches, places where healthcare organizations are vulnerable, and offer some ideas on how hospitals and healthcare organizations can be more secure.

In what we’re officially calling our Q&A after party we talk about things like the national patient identifier and its impact on security. We discuss block chain and its potential in healthcare and the security of block chain. We also have a patient advocate join us to put a great patient perspective on the need for security.
