When patients are facing or recovering from life-threatening surgery, they need to focus on getting better. Likewise when staff log on at work, they need to focus on providing the best care for their patients. The last thing they need to face is the news that their personal information has been stolen by cybercriminals.
Healthcare providers are becoming prime targets for cybercriminals due to the personal, financial, and demographic nature of patient and employee information stored on extensive hospital IT networks. With the number of vulnerability exploits increasing, healthcare information security using network protection, endpoint protection, and intrusion prevention is becoming an administration-critical issue.
Non-compliance with security regulations, such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), can result in exposure to security breaches;, leading to unauthorised access, data and identity theft, and fraud. A transparent, reliable, and cost-effective information security process that aligns with central administration and security audits is therefore vital crucial in order to protect privacy and revenues, and thereby maintain trust in the healthcare industry.
