CyberSafe 360 works with healthcare organizations to help them assess their current security measures, define goals and standards for where they ultimately want to be, and identify gaps in regulatory compliance. Healthcare presents a unique set of security challenges. Our experience in this industry is especially critical.
Hackers love healthcare. There are a host of reasons why, including:
- Healthcare organizations have highly valuable patient data.
- Traditionally, they also have underinvested in IT security and training.
- Further, their networks are highly interconnected with other networks.
Because of these factors, there is now a tidal wave of laws, rules, regulations, and standards that apply to healthcare organizations and healthcare providers. When it comes to data security, one of the most important regulatory pieces is the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Security Rule. The HIPAA Security Rule establishes national standards to protect individuals’ electronic personal health information that has been created, received, used, or maintained by a covered entity. The Security Rule requires appropriate administrative, physical, and technical safeguards to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and security of electronic protected health information. Having a cybersecurity partner that understands this environment is paramount. That’s where CyberSafe 360 comes in.
