Recent cyber-attacks perpetrated against covered entities in the healthcare industry underscore both the sophistication of cyber hackers and the continued security vulnerabilities of even the largest US firms. Last year alone, over 10 million people in the US were impacted by health care data breaches. Information housed by covered entities provides fertile ground for hackers because it contains names, birthdates – and most importantly – Social Security numbers, which are key pieces of information hackers use to open new credit lines, create fake medical records, or apply for loans.  

It’s clear that covered entities are a target of these cyber criminals. Yet, even with these alarming trends, there are basic security practices that many healthcare providers still fail to implement to bolster their defenses against cyber criminals.

IT thought leadership today faces a daunting challenge in Healthcare IT – managing HIPAA and HITECH Act compliance while maintaining a secure environment which does not restrict business and practice management – an always evolving task.

Join us for an informative webinar and discussion about cyber hacking in healthcare, and a review of some IT security best practices to consider. You will learn:

  • Types of breaches and how they occur
  • The stages of a Data breach
  • Key tips and Best Practices for securing and transmitting ePHI
