Third-Party Risk Management amid COVID-19 (featured in Security Magazine)

By | Press/News, Home Page Top

The COVID-19 pandemic has created an unprecedented impact on the healthcare community in the U.S. and throughout the world. It has forced an entire industry to think differently, innovate and adapt on the fly, and rethink their internal processes to support the spectrum of services they provide.

Long-standing, and seemingly well-established processes for procuring products and services are being reconsidered to meet the immediate and critical demand. Organizations must quickly engage with new third parties (vendors) and/or look to existing third parties for new products and services to respond to the crisis, all the while adhering to the required HIPAA Security and Privacy rules.

Even with the urgent need in the marketplace today for products and services, healthcare organizations cannot ignore third-party risk management (TPRM), which identifies and manages risks posed by third parties that provide software and services.

Records for Ransom

By | Press/News

How should health care organizations react when kidnappers grab the goods?

Ransomware is a type of malicious software that infects computers, servers, databases, and managed service providers, encrypting data on the infected platform. The individuals behind the nefarious attack request a price, or ransom, from the organization in order to release the information. Generally, they do not provide the data decryption key until the ransom is paid. According to Verizon’s 2019 Data Breach Investigations Report, ransomware incidents accounted for more than 70% of all malware occurrences across the health care industry.

How an Attack Happens
“Often, when a computer or system is infected, a blue screen, or some other anomaly, will appear with a message about the ransomware,” explains Ryan Patrick, MBA, CISSP, CCSFP, senior vice president of security products and strategy at Intraprise Health. “The attackers need to be paid via cryptocurrency to release the records. Health care is specifically targeted, as the health care industry, unlike other industries, has been slow to adapt to the security industry. In 1996, HIPAA went into effect, but people really didn’t pay attention to cybersecurity until about 2015 when there was a big breach at Anthem.”

Tackling the “Shock and Awe” of Medical Device Security One Step at a Time

By | Press/News

Sometimes it’s hard to even consider tackling a problem because it’s so awesome in nature. Webster’s defines awe as “a feeling of reverential respect mixed with fear or wonder.” Healthcare CIOs, CISOs and even members of board of directors express this sense of awe when discussing one of greatest security risk factors in their world — connected medical devices. Cybersecurity experts, however, offer advice: implement your security program incrementally so it won’t be so daunting. Read More

Managing Risk: The Business Case for Security Certification

By | Press/News

If you think it’s expensive and time-consuming to protect your healthcare organization’s data, you’re right. But just look at the cost of not having a solid security program and experiencing a healthcare breach. You needn’t look far.

A breach can be financially devastating. It will ruin your reputation. It will call into question your organization’s security program and its evident gaps. Patients may say, ‘If they can’t protect my personal information, how can I trust them with my health?” It’s a marketing nightmare. Read More
