Healthcare Data Security Solutions

From medical records to insurance forms to prescription services, the healthcare business is a networked environment – allowing patient information to be shared and managed by a variety of parties and from a number of endpoints, each with their own level of security for protecting that information.

Networking is magnified tenfold by the introduction of the Internet of Things (IoT) to Healthcare, as the number of connected devices and the tremendous amount of data they collect increases substantially. Numerous IoT applications in healthcare, from remote monitoring to smart sensors and medical device integration, have the potential to not only keep patients safe and healthy, but to improve how physicians deliver care as well. But there is the question of how to keep all of that data secure, especially if it is being exchanged with other devices.

Maintaining the security of patient data is a complex proposition that affects:

  • Every employee of a healthcare facility
  • Every area of its IT system
  • Every participant in the healthcare IoT ecosystem
  • All vendors, partners, and insurers that work with the healthcare provider

It's no surprise cyber criminals see medical data as particularly valuable as it enables them to illegally obtain medical goods and services or sell the sensitive information. As is the case with the IoT, major security flaws can pose serious threats to the health and safety of patients. For example, criminals can remotely manipulate devices, including those that controlled dosage levels for drug infusion pumps and connected defibrillators.

As a result, it is crucial that organizations implement healthcare data security solutions that will improve patient care while protecting important assets and satisfying healthcare compliance mandates.
