Healthcare providers and their patients are increasingly becoming a target of cyberattacks. A recent Accenture survey found that 26 percent of consumers had their personal medical information stolen, with half of those cases leading to identity theft and thousands in out-of-pocket costs. The leading site where these attacks occurred where hospitals.

Similarly, a Redspin annual cybersecurity report indicated a 320-percent increase in the number of healthcare providers attacked by cyberattackers in 2016, with 81 percent of breached records resulting from cyberattacks alone. While last year included the first instance of a ransomware attack by at hospital, the majority of cyberattacks occurred at small clinics.

While these reports may disagree as to the site of attacks, they together confirm that cybersecurity should be a priority for healthcare facilities of all sizes. In this webcast, Cambridge Health Alliance Chief Information Security Officer Arthur Ream III will highlight the components of a secure health IT infrastructure necessary for protecting health data and avoid security breaches, including:

  • PCI compliance
  • Mobile device strategies
  • Biomedical devices
  • Smart building devices
  • BYOD devices
  • Vendor management solutions
  • Non-Employee access and tracking

 

The presentation will also focus on protecting personal health information — in the data center and on user devices — with solutions that comply with HIPAA and Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH).
