By: Brian Katz

Description: Brian Katz talks with Eric Cowperthwaite (@e_cowperthwaite), the CISO of Providence Health & Systems about how they approach mobility and some of the lessons he learnt as mobility was brought into the company.

They discuss how Eric realized that he better get a hold of what was happening before it got a chance to get away from them. They start with talking about the approach that he and his team at Providence Health & Systems took and then how they handle BYOD. This leads to how they secure their information and actually engage their users to find solutions. In the end, Eric discusses how the goal is to help the patient which means helping their users to better engage them.
