KEEPING YOUR HEALTHCARE FACILITY SAFE

Protecting patients at a healthcare facility is as much the IT department’s responsibility as it is the doctors’. Between 2012 and 2015, the number of EHRs stolen annually skyrocketed from 2.7 million to nearly 110 million. And with more than 17,000 medical records illegally accessed every day, this trend shows no signs of slowing. This isn’t surprising considering the innumerable hardware and software vulnerabilities that exist today, paired with the fact that a single healthcare record is worth 10 times as much as a
compromised credit card number.

Challenge

Weaknesses in Websites, Mobile Apps, and the Cloud

Not long ago, employee negligence was the largest security worry healthcare facilities faced. Today, the primary source of security breaches has evolved from accidental to intentional, making outside attacks on web, mobile, and cloud-based applications the primary concern. Criminal attacks are up 125 percent since 2010, eclipsing the threat of lost laptops. And the more rapidly technology advances, the more vulnerabilities continue to emerge.

High-profile hacks at Anthem and Premera Blue Cross have exposed the information of tens of millions of patients, proving that even the largest organizations aren’t immune to network breaches. In fact, the healthcare industry is assailed by more DDoS attacks than all other industries combined. And with 35 percent of adult Americans planning on purchasing health and fitness technology in 2016, the quantity and availability of sensitive data has never been greater.

Many mobile apps have been developed using open-source software that contains easily exploitable algorithms. This reality caught the public eye in 2014 with the discovery of the pervasive Heartbleed bug, which revealed a vulnerability in the OpenSSL cryptography library and allowed for a staggering amount of supposedly secure information to be accessed.
