Healthcare organizations are particularly vulnerable to cyber threats. They house both personal health and payment information as well as intellectual property -- all lucrative targets for hackers. But most of these employees want to heal people, not become technologists, so they might view technology protections as healthcare speed bumps.

Healthcare Application Security and hipaa Compliance

As providers, payers, employees, patients, and partners become increasingly intertwined through shared data, transparency, and analytics, the amount of opportunities for loss, error, or theft grow exponentially. Multiple studies show that compared to other verticals, healthcare has had the highest percentage of incidents from theft or loss, suggesting that there is room for improvement.

Cyber-attacks are steadily on the rise across the globe. On previous recorded encounters, it was witnessed that cyber-attacks were generally focused on stealing financial information, billing information, and bank account numbers using stolen devices with un-encrypted data, phishing and spam mails. Technological advancements have given way to advanced cyber warfare using SQL injections, advanced persistent threats (APT), zero day attacks, and advanced malware. Furthermore, these organizations face internal threats due to factors such as the use of cloud services, unsecure networks, employee negligence, bring your own device (BYOD), lack of internal identification and security systems, and stolen devices with un-encrypted files.

Determine security posture

Assessing the state and security posture protecting Healthcare products and services has never been more important. Architecting required preventive controls is essential and implementing detective controls and processes are just as crucial.

Proactive security testing

In lieu of allocating resources to implement appropriate preventative controls, penetration testing is one alternative detective control that can expose areas of risk created when accelerated application development and overburdened system administrators inadvertently create vulnerabilities. Penetration Testing can also be a key control testing function of your required HIPPA risk analysis. If your Healthcare organization is processing credit card data, penetration testing will help you meet Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance requirements.
