Healthcare Information Security
Securing medical information is one of the most pressing issues facing hospitals and other healthcare organizations. According to a recent American National Standards Institute report, however, the lack of resources and leadership support are key factors that hamper many organizations in effectively protecting healthcare data.
Discover why a comprehensive risk assessment of your information-driven healthcare, along with implementing stronger controls and cost-effective technologies in infrastructure security, can help prevent electronic health record (EHR) breaches. Learn from Keith Tyson, healthcare industry consultant with Dell™ SecureWorks and Robert Slocum, sales and marketing professional from Dell the various steps in implementing robust security measures in these areas:
- Mobile device security
- Data center and networking security
- Endpoint access and encryption
- Continuous monitoring
To deal more effectively with internal and external threats, Tyson and Slocum recommend that healthcare providers — instead of simply reacting to the call for compliance or the need to prevent or respond to a breach — should adopt a more holistic approach. Along with a stronger alignment between administration, IT and clinicians, more automation and better tools are necessary to manage a threat landscape that rapidly evolves each year.
