Cyber Security for Healthcare
Healthcare records represent an extremely attractive target for cyber criminals, containing as they do various bits of sensitive information like Social Security numbers all in one place. Given the value of this data, it is clear why the Identity Theft Resource Center’s latest 2014 Data Breach Category Summary found that healthcare accounted for 43 percent of all breaches year-to-date. The challenge for IT and security professionals working in healthcare is that they must improve data protection without impeding healthcare professionals’ speedy access to potentially life-saving patient information. Combined with the sheer size and complexity of many hospital IT environments, it’s certainly an uphill task, but it’s not an impossible one.
With risks continuing to escalate, some organizations are taking a proactive approach, working to better protect patients’ data and fortify their systems before an attack or theft occurs.
Our IQPC Cyber Security for Healthcare Summit, taking place in Philadelphia on June 29-July 1, will help hospitals and medical device manufacturers to prepare and manage such risks by viewing cyber security not as a novel issue but rather by making it part of the hospital’s existing governance, risk management and business continuity framework.
