The mission of all healthcare organizations is to improve patient outcomes — and protecting patients, staff, administrators, and the systems underpinning the organization is paramount. Cisco recently spoke with NHS Management, LLC, in this new webinar to learn how NHS was able to achieve its business outcomes by building a strong security program.
It’s been a year that heavily impacted the healthcare industry – arguably, with skilled nursing facilities taking the biggest hit. These organizations are vulnerable to cybersecurity attacks with the switch to remote work and additional devices on networks. So there’s never been a more critical time to make sure your organization is protected and agile enough to keep up with increasingly sophisticated attacks.
Meet Cole Two Bears, Systems Architect for NHS Management, LLC. Cole is responsible for both networking and security for a healthcare organization that oversees 55+ skilled nursing facilities across the southeastern US, with 7400 daily users and 6000 network and endpoint devices. It’s been a multi-year journey for Cole and NHS, where his priority has been to ensure immediate response to security incidents so as not to impact to the direct care of patients.
Watch this on-demand webinar with Cole and Cisco’s own Sean Earhard, Advanced Threat Solution Specialist, to learn how Cole started with a piecemeal approach to his nascent security program and turned to a Cisco Enterprise Agreement for a holistic, integrated security program. As a SecureX beta program participant and now actively using SecureX in general availability, Cole has been able to simplify his day-to-day experience and secure his organization’s critical data in the most efficient way possible, particularly with capabilities such as SecureX threat response for investigating malware incidents and orchestration to automate workflows.
You’ll hear how, despite being one of the hardest-hit industries during this pandemic, NHS was able to transition to secure remote work and secure guest access to NHS patient families without missing a beat. Thanks to the great leaps he’s taken over the years to build up his security program holistically, with Cisco Secure and the SecureX platform.
