Greenway Health’s New CISO Viewpoint of Endpoint Detection and Response

Larry Whiteside the new CISO at Greenway Health is a cybersecurity veteran with more than 25 years of experience, and has served as CISO and chief security officer for large organizations in several sectors, including healthcare, financial services and critical infrastructure. He began working at Greenway Health in late 2017 but was promoted to the CISO position in November 2018.

According to Whiteside, Endpoint detection and response tools and other related security technologies are critical weapons for defending against cyberattacks.

In 2017, Greenway Health, experienced a ransomware attack that affected several hundred physician practices that use the company’s cloud-based EHR and practice management system.

Whiteside states, that we can’t stop incidents from happening. The ultimate goal goal is to minimize the impact as much as possible. So, the quicker you can see and identify something bad is happening and alleviate the issue.

Endpoint detection and response tools are imperative in order to the fight against cyber intrusions. These tools  provide the ability to isolate an event so that it doesn’t begin to spread and impact other parts of your environment,.
