Managing open source software risk for healthcare organizations 

For healthcare and healthtech organizations, balancing cybersecurity and technology innovation is a complex challenge.

Cybersecurity is crucial in safeguarding patient privacy, ensuring data integrity, maintaining trust, and fortifying healthcare infrastructure. At the same time, technology innovation plays a transformative role in areas such as healthcare access and delivery, telemedicine, improved electronic health records, and medical research and development.

Organizations that navigate this challenge and can both move fast and innovate while also keeping critical health information secure will be best positioned to deliver better patient experiences and health outcomes.
