Industry Spotlight: US Healthcare Security Budgets, Priorities, And Challenges

Healthcare Providers Must Move Beyond Compliance To Improve Security

February 19, 2014


Why Read This Report

Historically, IT security teams within US healthcare providers have had much smaller budgets than counterparts in other industries. As a result, they have struggled to implement advanced security functions and operations and adopt more sophisticated risk management practices. However, with HIPAA audits and fines on the rise, a rapidly changing threat landscape, and increasing public sensitivity regarding patient privacy, we are seeing an increased focus on security and risk maturity. The data privacy issue will become particularly acute in 2014 when all hospitals are required to use electronic medical records. How can security and risk (S&R) pros ensure patient data privacy in electronic systems, while still enabling both patients and providers across the continuum of care to access health data? This report helps S&R pros in the healthcare industry learn from their peers and provides specific recommendations on addressing leading technology risks.
