PODCAST: Tackling Security Vulnerabilities in Healthcare
The recent Anthem Healthcare data breach, which compromised the personal records of as many as 80 million individuals, continues to demonstrate that virtually any industry is vulnerable to cyber-attacks.
This breach also signals that now is the time for healthcare providers to take a long hard look at their data security strategies, and start making informed decisions about the risk they are willing to take when it comes to managing their data.
While staying one step ahead of the bad guys is always a challenge, there are steps that healthcare providers can take to help protect their networks. These include going beyond HIPPA compliance, enhancing continuous monitoring and thinking strategically about the hackers’ motivation.
These are some key insights from a recent TechSource podcast with Jeff Man, Security Strategist at Tenable Network Security, who also discusses how healthcare providers need to find the right balance in developing their cyber security strategies.
