InSecurity Podcast: As a Healthcare CISO, Taylor Lehmann protects more than just Endpoints

Is a Patient a User? A Customer? A Client? Wellforce CISO Taylor Lehmann Needs to Protect Them All.

Taylor Lehmann is the CISO of a healthcare system spread over 8 locations that treats hundreds of thousands of patients and employs thousands of staff.

He has to be on top of all it from a cybersecurity perspective. Wellforce users and “customers” are a very different responsibility for Taylor compared to that of the average CISO. Lives are literally on the line.

In this episode of InSecurity, Matt Stephenson chats with Wellforce’s Taylor Lehmann on the role of the CISO at a large, multi-location healthcare system. Taylor isn’t just a suit-and-tie executive, though. He puts on the scrubs and does rounds with the medical staff in order to immerse himself in the daily operations of the facilities. For Taylor, that is the only way to grok what is happening at Wellforce and to know what he and his teams must be doing to protect it
