    From the National Cyber Director: No Degree Required

    From the National Cyber Director: No Degree Required

    The new National Cyber Director, Harry Coker, stated that the White House intends "to reduce unnecessary barriers" federal contractors face in filling cybersecurity jobs, like requirements for four-year college degrees. The plan aims to build a cybersecurity workforce without needing a traditional four-year degree. The benefit is that individuals can gain valuable skills and experience through alternative pathways such as apprenticeships, certifications, and on-the-job training. This initiative opens up opportunities for people from diverse backgrounds to enter the cybersecurity field and contribute to national security. Join us on this podcast as we dissect the strategy's rationale, impact, and outcomes. Will it reduce college entrance or bolster cybersecurity? How will job positions be affected, and should your pay be reduced due to the change? Let's talk!

    We can Improve Healthcare Cybersecurity, Please Listen

    We can Improve Healthcare Cybersecurity, Please Listen

    The healthcare sector is particularly vulnerable to cybersecurity risks, and the stakes for patient care and safety are exceptionally high. Healthcare facilities are attractive targets for cybercriminals due to their size, technological dependence, sensitive data, and vulnerability to disruptions.
    Cyber incidents affecting hospitals and health systems have led to extended care disruptions caused by multi-week outages, patient diversion to other facilities, and strain on acute care provisioning and capacity, causing canceled medical appointments, non-rendered services, and delayed medical procedures (particularly elective procedures). More importantly, they put patients' safety at risk and impact local and surrounding communities that depend on the availability of the local emergency department, radiology unit, or cancer center for life-saving care.
    In this podcast, we discuss healthcare cybersecurity programs and operations and understand the importance of fortifying them in today's digital landscape. Join us as we explore practical strategies, cutting-edge technologies, and insights to enhance healthcare cybersecurity. Discover critical techniques for safeguarding sensitive patient data, preventing cyber threats, and ensuring the confidentiality and integrity of healthcare systems. Stay up-to-date with industry practices and learn how to optimize your organization's healthcare framework. Don't miss out on this valuable resource for anyone involved in healthcare cybersecurity. Watch and listen now and bolster your healthcare cybersecurity programs and operations!
