Data-driven industries are increasingly becoming the victim of sophisticated cyberattacks, and the range of threats to personal health information has never been more complex. The Governor of Georgia recently announced construction of a six-story Georgia Cyber Innovation and Training Center on the campus of Augusta University slated to begin in the summer of 2017.

Augusta University will be central to the critical goal of bolstering cybersecurity workforce development through improved education and research opportunities. In episode 18 of The Cerner Podcast, Charlie Enicks, vice president and CIO of Augusta University and Health System, discusses how to equip the next generation of cybersecurity experts.

In this episode, Charlie answers these five questions:

  • We'd like to discuss the university's initiative with the state in-depth, but first, can you help us understand why hackers are targeting health care and what are the biggest threats?
  • What barriers and challenges do you see to protecting patient information and/or general safety concerns against cyberattacks?
  • It's undeniable that our industry needed a technological revolution. How did we get to a point where ransomware and daily breaches are occurring?
  • Augusta University announced in collaboration with the governor, the new Georgia Cyber Innovation and Training Center - one of the strongest financial commitments we've seen to overcome cybersecurity issues. What are the first major initiatives the Augusta University Cyber Institute will try to tackle?
  • Looking forward to the next 5 to 10 years, what should be done to better address the challenges as technology will only continue to evolve and how do we equip the next generation of cybersecurity experts?
