Security concerns will only grow in 2017, as cyber attacks become more focused and sophisticated. Healthcare organizations will continue to struggle to protect their networks and keep patients’ protected health information out of the wrong hands.

They included Mac McMillan, co-founder and CEO of CynergisTek, a top-ranked information security and privacy consulting firm focused on the healthcare IT industry; David Finn, health information technology officer for Symantec; Tim Erlin, senior director of IT security and risk strategy for Tripwire; Brian Evans, senior managing consultant for IBM Security; and Lance Hayden, chief privacy and security officer for ePatientFinder.
