If you fly frequently, you probably have the pre-takeoff safety check memorized. They always say that in case of an emergency, put the oxygen mask on your child before yourself, right?

In this episode of She Said Privacy/He Said Security, Jodi and Justin Daniels sit down with Tammy Taylor, the President of Advantum Health, to discuss the future of cybersecurity in the healthcare industry. Tammy talks about her tips for preventing security breaches, how HIPAA is falling behind with advancing technology, and why she highly recommends multi-factor authentication.
