Cybercriminals are putting more time and resources into exploiting and monetizing patient data, with medical record information proving more valuable than Social Security numbers and other personally identifiable information (PII). As a result, the healthcare industry is growing increasingly concerned with the harvesting of credentials to gain access to an organization’s network to steal data.
In this presentation, Texas Hospital Association (THA) Senior Vice President and Chief Digital Officer and THA Foundation President and CEO Fernando Martinez, PhD, will outline challenges to securing patient data and the best practices for organizations to ensure the security of their patient data.
• Understanding the threat and be proactive about replacing older systems, processes, and equipment
• Having a secure infrastructure to protect patient data and avoid data breaches, keeping patient and business data secure
• Protecting PHI in the data center and on user devices with products that meet HIPAA and HITECH requirements
• Ensuring endpoint protection and detection
