With advances in technology, healthcare providers now have access to sophisticated imaging systems that have improved medical diagnostics. Newer digital modalities produce higher resolution and better-quality images that enable more accurate clinical decisions. But this benefit comes at a cost. From MRIs to multi-slice CTs, tomosynthesis, cardiac imaging, and more, imaging data is growing at a staggering rate. As we transition from the digital age to the data age, an increasing number of healthcare organizations are challenged by overwhelming data growth. The introduction of nontraditional imaging and the requirements of managing larger imaging studies are affecting the ability to share data between remote facilities, meet retention guidelines, and recover from outages without sacrificing accessibility or availability, both of which are crucial for efficient operation and effective patient care.

6 Guidelines for Crafting a Charter for Your Business Transformation
Business transformation is not a roadmap that your business will follow, step by step, milestone after milestone, until you reach a destination or end-goal called “digital transformation.” A final destination does not exist—transformation is more like an on-going charter —you set out with well-reasoned and well-supported intentions (a strong business case and buy-in from the C-suite) for your business to venture into the future. The unexpected will occur, but your business will learn from it. Listen to this episode to learn about 6 guidelines for crafting a charter for your business transformation: Define what transformation means to your enterprise and your customer. Align IT and business. Laser-focus on one thing you do really well. Lead with a Tiger Team—and make it a brilliant one. Innovation is the key driver of transformation and, to innovate, you must allow for iteration and failure. Build in security and privacy.
3 Keys to Web Application Security
Web applications are under siege as hackers work around the clock to identify weak spots and steal data. Last year’s Equifax data breach put a spotlight on web-application vulnerabilities, which can be used to target any organization with an internet presence. Cyber attackers have embraced the use of automation to scan applications for vulnerabilities. Protecting against application-layer techniques such as SQL injection (SQLi), cross-site scripting (XSS), cross-site request forgery (CSRF) and distributed denial of service (DDoS) is imperative, but automated attacks can overwhelm existing security solutions. Listen to this episode to learn: How to maintain awareness of evolving web application issues and trends Tips for advancing patch management and vulnerability assessment processes Solutions that leverage DDoS defenses, bot mitigation, artificial intelligence (AI) and API endpoint protection to combat automated attacks Techniques for protecting apps in multi-cloud infrastructures Best practices for ensuring security checks and controls are applied automatically and transparently throughout the software development lifecycle.
Moving Beyond Passwords with Risk-Based MFA
Last year, the impacts of the WannaCry, NotPetya, and Equifax cyber attacks were closely followed by the stunning disclosure of the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities, increasing the sense of urgency around cybersecurity and driving spending higher than ever before. Despite increased spending on security products and services, the number of data breaches continues to rise. Funding doesn’t guarantee successful security. Organizations often waste valuable resources on practices that fail to protect against evolving threats, and continue to prop up password security. Listen to this episode to learn: Why the latest version of the CIS Controls has removed all references to passwords How multi-factor authentication (MFA) can make access hard for hackers, but easy for users The advantage of risk-based authentication mechanisms How to identify the authentication solution that is best for your organization Best practices for avoiding MFA implementation pitfalls
