Healthcare Security & Compliance
Healthcare providers and insurers are faced with a range of challenges when it comes to healthcare data security. Complex regulations such as the Healthcare Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (i.e. HIPAA Privacy Rule) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act of 2009, combined with under-resourced IT teams relying on legacy systems and manual processes, can make compliance with these healthcare information security regulations a seemingly endless struggle.
In addition, because the threat landscape is constantly evolving, healthcare IT security teams must keep up with the latest changes to know of any threats targeting their users, applications, or devices that can ultimately lead to ePHI loss.
Unfortunately, many healthcare organizations assume incorrectly that they are too small to be targeted. However, the range of organizations that fell victim to security breaches in healthcare in the last year demonstrates that organizations of any size are targets.
The threats to healthcare data security are not just external–Verizon’s 2016 Data Breach Incident Report describes healthcare as one of the most affected industries by insider and privilege misuse.
