The Corporate Facility Information Security Official (FISO) is responsible for leading, driving, and in some cases, implementing Information Security (IS) activities and measures in company facilities, working alongside the physician practice FISO, supported by the division, under the supervision of the IT Security Manager as well as the Division Information Security Official (DISO).

/IS Activities:/

These activities are part of the enterprise (company-wide) and division-specific IS programs and operations. IS activities at the facility-level are primarily based on: (a) ongoing IS work and expectations outlined in the company’s IS policies, standards, and guidance documents, (b) new and/or prioritized IS work in the Facility IS Action Plans from the Corporate IS Department, and (c) IS aspects in projects from the IS Department, IT&S Department, Business Units and Division.

/Enterprise IS Program:/

The enterprise (company-wide) IS program is led by the VP & CISO and IS Department in IT&S. Together with the DISO, the Corporate FISO is the “face” of the enterprise and division IS programs to facility leadership, workforce members, and other people and entities (e.g., physicians and certain vendors) affiliated with the facility. The Corporate FISO is responsible for implementing the company’s organizational IS agenda, championing improvements to reduce IS risks to patients and business operations in the facility, and serving as a bridge between the division and the facility.

/Division IS Program:/

The division IS program is led by the DISO. The division program includes implementation plans and activities for the enterprise IS Program and projects, and division-specific IS plans, activities and projects. Like the enterprise IS Program, the Corporate FISO is responsible for leading, driving and ensuring the division IS program is implemented in the Corporate FISO’s assigned facilities.

/Facility IS Program:/

Generally, the facility IS program and facility IS activities are based on implementation and ongoing, operational compliance with company IS requirements. These activities include both Information Technology (IT) and non-IT related areas. In addition, all facility workforce members have a role regarding IS. The Corporate FISO is responsible for leading, driving and helping the facility and facility workforce members appropriately comply with the company’s IS requirements.


The Corporate FISO drives the results the company wants by extending the reach of the enterprise IS program into facilities. This includes developing IS processes, building staff awareness and competencies for security, and effectively collaborating across boundaries to ensure enterprise IS goals and company priorities are met and business value is realized.


This role requires extensive focus on building and expanding relationships with key stakeholders such as Facility leadership, Facility workforce members, Physicians, Division leadership, Division IT team, IS department, business partners and vendors, and other people and entities who support the IS objectives and activities at the facility.


The Corporate FISO must have and will use a combination of skills including IT technical skills, IS knowledge, people relating skills, written and verbal communication skills, interpersonal skills and the ability to develop, communicate and follow processes to get technical and non-technical work accomplished.
