CIO Podcast – Episode 31: Risk Management and Cybersecurity with Jesse Fasolo


For the 31st episode of the CIO Podcast hosted by Healthcare IT Today, we caught up with Jesse Fasolo, Director, Technology Infrastructure and Cybersecurity, Chief Information Security Officer at St. Joseph’s Health. Fasolo provided a unique perspective as he is CISO at St. Joseph’s Health, but he is also responsible for infrastructure. This means that he is responsible for both the security plan and strategy and for executing many parts of that plan. In this episode, we dive into his use of a framework to guide his efforts and his use of a risk management tool. Additionally, we ask if cloud or on-premises is more secure.

Here is an overview of the questions and topics we discuss in this episode:

  • What keeps you up at night?
  • Which technologies help you sleep better at night?
  • I saw that you are a fan of NIST, why do you like this framework?
  • What advice do you have for choosing a partner to help you with risk management and your cybersecurity journey?
  • Are cloud or on-premises more secure and how are they different from a security perspective?
  • What do you do to stay ahead of others in your work?
  • What is the best advice you have received in your career?

Now, without further ado, we’re excited to share with you the next episode of Healthcare IT Today’s CIO Podcast.
