Security Beyond HIPAA Compliance

As technology becomes increasingly prevalent, the healthcare industry has experienced a corresponding increase in cyberattacks. Even small clinics often store PHI (Personal Health Information) for thousands of patients, making them attractive targets for cybercriminals.

Additionally, many healthcare facilities have a traditional culture that may not prioritize IT security, leaving them vulnerable to attack. With a range of potential attack vectors, it can be challenging to accurately assess the risks specific to your organization. At Qualysec, we specialize in helping healthcare organizations meet HIPAA compliance requirements and address these unique security challenges.

Challenges to the Healthcare Industry

Regulating the medical industry is crucial due to the large amount and sensitivity of medical information in healthcare organizations. HIPAA is the primary regulation for these companies and requires all organizations that handle PHI to adhere to a standardized set of controls. Maintaining HIPAA compliance can be a challenge, even for well-prepared organizations.

Healthcare Challenges

Challenges such as limited technology budgets and a slow-moving organizational culture are common in the healthcare industry. These issues can often be addressed through effective management, including the identification of the costs incurred by hacked medical companies, such as Anthem and Premera.

Potential Impacts:

  • HIPAA Compliance/HITECH Penalties
  • Breach Lawsuit/Legal Fees
  • Operational Downtime/Medical Impact
  • Negative Press/Public Relations
