KEYNOTE: Meet McKesson CISO Spencer Mott

McKesson CISO Spencer Mott is responsible for enhancing and overseeing the information and cybersecurity strategy and program at a highly diverse and global Fortune 5 healthcare company.  He leads the Information Security & Risk Management team that oversees projects, standards, and controls that mitigate risks, strengthen defenses, and reduce vulnerabilities in a manner that aligns with business goals. He brings over 30 years’ experience in technology and security, encompassing domestic, international, public and private sectors. His industry experience includes healthcare, technology, and government. Mott has also spent time in the Royal Marines/Armed Forces and in leadership roles with the Metropolitan Police Service’s Serious Organized Crime Group at New Scotland Yard.

Mott will be joined by DRI President and CEO Chloe Demrovsky as the two explore questions such as:

  • With the great concern surrounding cyber penetration emanating from suppliers, how does McKesson vet the 40,000 pharmaceutical customers to ensure that they do not introduce malware into McKesson’s technology environment?
  • With the increase in privacy regulation GDPR, HIPAA, etc. how does McKesson create a secure environment while protecting individual privacy?
  • McKesson has grown in recent years through acquisition; Rexall Health, Vantage Oncology and Biologics, Medical Specialties Distributors and others over the last two years. How does McKesson vet the quality of the security of the systems from these acquired organizations?  Does McKesson have a set of standards that they require for all McKesson companies?
  • What do you consider the greatest threat to maintaining secure systems? From what source do you think these threats emanate?

This discussion will lay the groundwork for a deep dive into McKesson’s program that we’re calling “The McKesson Sessions.” These sessions will provide an unprecedented, up-close look at how the resilience disciplines work together at McKesson, and will be followed by a Q&A with the McKesson team in the Exhibit Hall.
