About paul hypki, CISO at Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota

paul hypkiPaul Hypki (@hypkip) has been the CISO at Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota since 2017. His background includes healthcare, banking, and brokerage.

His Information Security journey began in the early 2000s as the Risk Officer with a job description of “keep us off the front page of the Wall Street Journal.”

Moving from finance to health care was a culture shock. After years in health care, Paul better understands that information security risk must be continuously measured, evaluated, and prioritized across the entire enterprise, and monies allocated where the maximum risk reduction can be achieved.
