"Information security threats facing the healthcare industry and specifically patient data are more robust and complex than ever," said Kurt J. Long, founder and CEO of FairWarning. "For the third consecutive year as the presenting sponsor of the Cyber Security Command Center, we see it as our duty to help move the industry forward by investing in technologies and resources that provide organizations tools and more importantly, the time they need to secure protected health information.
