Often, they use machines such as remote-controlled robots to safeguard their human team members. Obviously, they want to prevent the blast from happening in the first place, but at the very least, they want to ensure they can mitigate its impact as much as possible.
By Derrick Lowe, Chief Information Security Officer at Orlando Health, a Palo Alto Networks customer - On the surface, cybersecurity in healthcare may not seem all that different from cybersecurity in other verticals such as financial services, retail, manufacturing, or education.
