“Cybersecurity has become a major topic. It struck me that I have to protect the kids and the best way to do that is to get more engaged and more involved. So when the Cybersecurity opportunity came available I thought ‘you know that’s something I would really like to be involved in’ because again it’s about educating our leadership about how important security is. But on the other hand, making sure the data and information’s available to actually take care of the patient. So, it’s a delicate balance between being very secure and having nothing happen, and not letting terrible things happen because of Cybersecurity. Its things we’ve never had to worry about. “
