Data Protection Is Essential Part of Healthcare IT
The 2017 HIMSS annual conference and expo is coming up fast, right after the holidays.
The global event is scheduled for February 19-23 in Orlando at the Orange County Convention Center and brings together more than 40,000 health IT professionals, clinicians, executives and ecosystem vendors. Education and the exposure to cutting-edge health IT technology and solutions are hallmarks of this annual conference.
Please join NCS Technologies at Booth #5644 at HIMSS17! Cybersecurity is a big focus on this event. Key focus areas for HIMSS17 include: helping improve an organization's security posture; what the current challenging and dynamic cyber threat landscape looks like today; what are the cutting-edge technologies addressing cybersecurity; and how best to prepare a healthcare organization to defend against cyber threats.
Protect Healthcare Data
Most of us as individuals or those close to us regularly see doctors and occasionally need hospitalization. With privacy protections from regulations like HIPAA, it may seem a given that our health care records will be protected. But sadly this is not the case. All it takes is the theft of a PC to reveal thousands or even millions of personal records - all of it highly private. As an example, just in one month this year - June - more than 11 million patient records were exposed. In October, St. Joseph Health in Irvine, CA reported it will pay more than $2 million to settle allegations that its network exposed the records of more than 30,000 patients. For the latest data, see breach reports from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
Protect Financial Data
By now most healthcare organizations regularly analyze and implement multiple strategies to secure patient data. Unfortunately, patient data breaches are a fact of life in healthcare and are reported on a weekly basis. Data loss can be related to external attacks, or rogue employees accessing data unrelated to job responsibilites or records carelessly exposed by lost or stolen PCs.
Financial professionals attending next week's Healthcare Financial Management Association "Out of the Box" event should be aware that strong security must also be extended into protection of financial data in the hospital, clinic or office. For those in finance, data protection must go beyond standard anti-virus updates and the now publicized ransomware threats.
With the New Year, journalists will soon begin to publish lists of the biggest data breaches of 2015. As the headlines will attest, every industry and sector is vulnerable and all continue to be hacked.
It is estimated that nearly every American had personal data stolen over the past 24 months.
It makes sense that data security is of vital importance in the financial sector. After all, financial data is among the most sensitive type of information that businesses possess, and is probably the most desirable information to would-be hackers. Companies that work with financial data are responsible for protecting this information- and failing to properly do so can have potentially disasterous outcomes for the business and its customers.
