Zero Trust in Healthcare - A Cure for Identity and Access ManagementOkta's Nick Fisher on a Changing Security Landscape
The healthcare industry is undergoing its own digital transformation, with doctors, nurses, administrators and even patients entrusting more data to the cloud. With all this change, however, comes concern over security.
Okta's Nick Fisher believes that by adopting a zero trust model, healthcare organizations can help create a better process for identity and access management for employees, which, in turn, can help better secure patient data.
In an interview with Information Security Media Group, Fisher discusses:
- How healthcare organizations are approaching zero trust and identity and access management;
- The security challenges hospitals have when adopting a cloud-first approach;
- How healthcare organizations can better protect patient data.
Fisher is a group product marketing manager of security products at Okta. He has over a decade of experience in enterprise SaaS and modern security solutions. Previously, Fisher led product marketing at Lookout, where he helped develop the enterprise mobile security market.
