Strengthening Security and Compliance Posture through Cyber Resilience in Healthcare
Tue, Oct 17, 8:30am - 9:30am PT
Healthcare organizations manage vast amounts of personal data, including medical records and financial details, making them lucrative targets for cyberattacks. Breaches not only compromise patient privacy but also pose serious risks to patient safety if medical records are tampered with or systems are disrupted. Moreover, the interconnected nature of healthcare networks and the rise of telemedicine create additional vulnerabilities. These factors drive the need for robust cybersecurity measures to protect patient data, maintain trust, ensure continuous care, and safeguard the overall integrity of healthcare systems.
In turn, it is not surprising that the healthcare industry is one of the most regulated market segments. Despite very stringent regulations like the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, the sector has seen a jump in data breaches over the last three years though. This raises the question if solely applying security controls recommended by industry standards and government regulations is sufficient to tackle today’s dynamic threat landscape.
