            Effective Lifecycle Management of Healthcare Applications: Utilizing a Portfolio Framework

            Effective Lifecycle Management of Healthcare Applications: Utilizing a Portfolio Framework (Paperback)

            The rapid growth of software applications within healthcare organizations has made it essential to have defined methodologies and formal processes for the management of the entire IT portfolio. Utilizing a portfolio management framework throughout an application's lifecycle will ...provide the necessary structure to ensure that all new applications are properly evaluated, and once implemented, remain relevant while continuing to meet organizational requirements. While an organization may have a few large 'organization-wide' systems such as the EHR, lab or radiology systems, they also have a large quantity of other clinical, administrative and research systems. Some larger organizations now have hundreds of software applications to support and manage. The Information Technology (IT) staff must be able to implement new requests while still maintaining the current application portfolio. Utilizing a standard, repeatable, process will help to manage these large portfolios of software applications. This book will review the management of applications throughout their lifecycle, from initial request through disposition. Best practices dictate that every newly requested application undergoes analysis followed by an approval decision from the organization's governance committee. The initial implementation project must include activities to prepare for ongoing support while ensuring the application is compliant with all security, privacy and architecture requirements. An application spends years in operations and maintenance where changes occur regularly through configuration and release management, or additional projects. The cycle continues until disposition. Understanding when to dispose of an application is just as important as deciding when to implement a new one. A defined process for disposing of an application ensures all parts are properly removed or destroyed.

            Todd Fitzgerald, co-author of the ground-breaking (ISC)2 CISO Leadership: Essential Principles for Success, Information Security Governance Simplified: From the Boardroom to the Keyboard, co-author for the E-C Council CISO Body of Knowledge, and contributor to many others includi...ng Official (ISC)2 Guide to the CISSP CBK, COBIT 5 for Information Security, and ISACA CSX Cybersecurity Fundamental Certification, is back with this new book incorporating practical experience in leading, building, and sustaining an information security/cybersecurity program. CISO COMPASS includes personal, pragmatic perspectives and lessons learned of over 75 award-winning CISOs, security leaders, professional association leaders, and cybersecurity standard setters who have fought the tough battle. Todd has also, for the first time, adapted the McKinsey 7S framework (strategy, structure, systems, shared values, staff, skills and style) for organizational effectiveness to the practice of leading cybersecurity to structure the content to ensure comprehensive coverage by the CISO and security leaders to key issues impacting the delivery of the cybersecurity strategy and demonstrate to the Board of Directors due diligence. The insights will assist the security leader to create programs appreciated and supported by the organization, capable of industry/ peer award-winning recognition, enhance cybersecurity maturity, gain confidence by senior management, and avoid pitfalls. The book is a comprehensive, soup-to-nuts book enabling security leaders to effectively protect information assets and build award-winning programs by covering topics such as developing cybersecurity strategy, emerging trends and technologies, cybersecurity organization structure and reporting models, leveraging current incidents, security control frameworks, risk management, laws and regulations, data protection and privacy, meaningful policies and procedures, multi-generational workforce team dynamics, soft skills, and comm

            CISO's Guide to Penetration Testing: A Framework to Plan, Manage, and Maximize Benefits details the methodologies, framework, and unwritten conventions penetration tests should cover to provide the most value to your organization and your customers. Discussing the process from bo...th a consultative and technical perspective, it provides an overview of the common tools and exploits used by attackers along with the rationale for why they are used. From the first meeting to accepting the deliverables and knowing what to do with the results, James Tiller explains what to expect from all phases of the testing life cycle. He describes how to set test expectations and how to identify a good test from a bad one. He introduces the business characteristics of testing, the imposed and inherent limitations, and describes how to deal with those limitations. The book outlines a framework for protecting confidential information and security professionals during testing. It covers social engineering and explains how to tune the plethora of options to best use this investigative tool within your own environment. Ideal for senior security management and anyone else responsible for ensuring a sound security posture, this reference depicts a wide range of possible attack scenarios. It illustrates the complete cycle of attack from the hacker's perspective and presents a comprehensive framework to help you meet the objectives of penetration testing-including deliverables and the final report.

            It takes 17 years on average to bring new health ideas into evidence-based clinical practice. The growing replicability crisis in science further delays these new miracles. Blockchain can improve replicability and hasten the knowledge translation process. This book is about scien...ce, its value to our health, and how we can use blockchain to improve its quality and impact. The book will look at science and medicine from an insider's perspective, and describe the processes, successes, shortcomings and opportunities for advancement for the lay audience. It will give the reader a non-technical look at the emerging world of blockchain technology; what it is, where it is useful, and how it can improve science and health. It will lay out a roadmap for this application to transform how we develop knowledge about disease and accelerate cures to improve our lives. In the first part, the authors look at science as a process and how this drives advancement in medicine. They'll then shed a light on some of science's shortcomings, including the reproducibility crisis and problems with misaligned incentives (i.e. publish or perish). The book applies a breakdown of critical components to the functional steps in the scientific process and outlines how the open science movement is looking to improve these. It will also highlight the limit of these fixes with current technology, incentives and structure of science. The second part, looks at the history of distributed ledgers from pre-computer versions to the current applications of blockchain/distributed ledger technology and gives an overview of use cases for the technology across industries, including finance, manufacturing and healthcare. Additional focus will be provided to the application challenges with more complex data systems and the need for a contributing network of users. The third and last part, looks at the principle of a distributed autonomous organization (DAO) applied to the health sciences. The authors examine how thi
