HIMSSCast: A corporate counsel's perspective on data breaches

At the HIMSS Healthcare Cybersecurity Forum in Boston this past week, I sat down with Roshal Marshall, managing chief counsel for global privacy and cybersecurity at McKesson.

Our chat was focused primarily on corporate counsel’s perspectives on data breaches: how she works with chief information security officers and other IT leaders, advice on ensuring compliance, managing incident response, handling litigation and more.

We also spoke about emerging challenges around artificial intelligence and algorithmic integrity, 21st Century Cures and information blocking rules – and other data governance and compliance challenges.
