I’m a Technology CEO and Experienced Entrepreneur. I love helping people use technology to grow their business.

  • Eighty-one percent of health care executives say that their organizations have been compromised by at least one malware, botnet, or other cyber-attack during the past two years
  • 13 percent saying they are targeted by external hack attempts about once a day
  • 16 percent of healthcare organizations said they cannot detect in real-time if their systems are compromised.

  • Only half feel that they are adequately prepared in preventing attacks
