With the recent rash of Healthcare data breaches it raises an important concern why is this happening? Especially, given the regulatory frameworks in place to protect patient data. We could spend many resources to determine the root cause of these issues however, there might be a better approach to begin with.
Specifically, healthcare providers, product and service companies need to change their approach to how they collect and protect patient data. The protection chain and data lifecycle needs to be completely understood. Only then can we ensure that data breaches do not become the norm.
TwelveDot using sound security principles based on ISO Security Standards has developed an organizational approach to addressing healthcare security. We have created a White Paper entitled “A Systematic Approach to Cyber Health” that details what organizations need to accomplish and our approach to put them in a position to better secure data handled.
Our goal is that only using a systematic approach to cyber security can healthcare providers ensure they protect their patient data.
