Both the definition and delivery of healthcare is evolving at an exponential rate. A swift convergence of medical advances, emerging technologies, consumer choices, and expectations is accelerating change. No longer confined by the walls and location of a hospital, your teams are caring for patients both face-to-face and from afar. This expanding and virtual healthcare drives better patient outcomes – from fewer office visits, to active device monitoring, to 24/7 access to patient data in real-time. But fast-paced innovation also propels the potential for security vulnerabilities, requiring healthcare delivery organizations like yours to work across the ecosystem – with medical device manufacturers, electronic health record providers, regulatory agencies, and payors to implement unified strategies that address today’s threats and tomorrow’s risks.
The steady evolution of medical technology intends to improve the healthcare experience for patients, families and practitioners alike. However, the lack of a strong security posture contributes to the healthcare industry having the highest per-record data breach cost among all regulated industries. Combined with the need to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements (HIPAA and FDA) and best practices (HIMSS and AHIMA), healthcare organizations leveraging the latest medical technology and IoT have no choice but to ensure that they are secure. Not only is a malicious hack or data breach costly, lacking security for personally identifiable information (PII), safety and personal health information (PHI) puts lives in danger.
Today’s primary security threats include:
- HIPAA & healthcare data breaches
- Device hacking
- Fake websites selling counterfeit drugs or devices
- Ransomware and denial of service attacks
- Social media
- Mobile workforces
- Cloud data and applications
- Healthcare data and confidential information amassed and shared by networks, vendors and payors
Your environment is filled with identities made up of people, applications and devices. Whether you’re in a large urban hospital or small rural satellite office, every identity matters – and must be digitally secure at all times. Digital certificates ensure the integrity of healthcare data and device exchanges through encryption and authentication, asserting with high assurance that transmitted messages are genuine. So whether you need to cover 10 or 10 million identities, the Keyfactor platform is scalable and flexible to meet your specific needs.
