For Mark Dean, Senior Systems Administrator at Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM) in Atlanta, Georgia, the cybersecurity war is a never-ending tit for tat with what he calls the ransomware people. Think you have built-in redundancy? They are already after it. In this premiere episode of Innovations in Education—Higher Ed, Mark discusses his strategies for keeping the data, and more importantly, the people safe online at this prestigious institution. MSM is among the nation’s leading educators of primary care physicians, biomedical scientists and public health professionals. An independent, private and historically Black medical school, MSM works to increase patient access to high-quality care and eliminate health disparity in underserved communities.
