You will learn the three major categories of blind spots that influence decisions and behaviors, and Kevin will explain why transformation caused by technology may make these blind spots more relevant than ever.
Book for attendees
Blind Spots: Why Good People Make Bad Choices
Attendees will receive a copy of the book Blind Spots: Why Good People Make Bad Choices by Kevin McCarthy, keynote speaker for the conference. A respected business leader, faithful husband and loving father suddenly finds himself in a federal prison for a crime he didn’t knowingly commit. As he struggles to understand the complexity of his bad decisions, an ever-widening web of conspiracy and corruption is revealed – a conspiracy of the mind. Blind spots are those unconscious biases, implicit associations, memory traps and thinking errors that affect our behavior and decision-making abilities. We all have them even though we think we don’t.
Jeffrey Sturman, SVP & CIO
Oscar Perez, VP of IT
Richard Leon, CISO
Memorial Healthcare System
Jeffrey and Oscar will discuss the hottest technology topics in healthcare today, including digitization, artificial intelligence and handling breaches. Healthcare providers are being heavily impacted by digital transformation, and the effects are rippling throughout the security and audit professionals in the industry. Don't miss this presentation.
