Brad Anderson’s Lunch Break / s7 e11 / John Houston, CISO, UPMC – #Microsoft

This week, Brad hops in the minivan with John Houston, the CISO of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC), to talk about evaluating and selecting cloud vendors and apps for business use, as well as keeping an open mind about changing tools as technology improves.

They also discuss existential threats to both their companies, choosing products that intelligently balance functionality vs. security, testifying in front of the U.S. Senate (as a non-hostile witness, hopefully), and how to get the most out of your software vendors.
