Nurses, Nurses, Nurses, and How Cybersecurity Is Helping (And Sometimes Hurting) Nursing Today

May 17, 2022

Most times, the real superheroes don't wear capes. They wear PPE and help keep our bodies and minds safe from bacterial invaders and foreign objects. However, the real heroes of nursing are those who not only juggle healthcare and the ins-and-outs of healthy bodies and minds, but the ones who juggle legacy PHI systems, old machinery, and data collection that came from a time before computers. Those heroes deserve a big round of applause from both sides- healthcare and cybersecurity. So, give a nurse a thank you, and see if you can find something useful to leave them in this week's cybersecurity newsletter.
