Each month HIMSS Veteran Career Services (VCS) hosts a webinar on various topics regarding military to civilian transition. October’s webinar topic was “Military and Health IT Security, How They Connect”. Coincidentally, October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month .
On 15 Oct 2014, Heather Roszkokwski shared her personal story and how she was able to transition from a successful Army career into securing the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) position in a civilian medical facility. As a soldier, it’s your responsibility to protect our country from foreign and domestic threats; however, this important component of military service is also relatable in the healthcare IT field. In her webinar, Heather explained how the two directly connect. To hear the presentation in its entirety, please visit: Military and Health IT security, how they connect.
