Healthcare Application Security HIPAA
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.
Having strategically harnessed technology to produce digital businesses, many companies are now creating the adaptable, scalable, and interconnected platform for an ecosystem-based digital economy. The speed at which newer technologies are being adopted by FIs significantly add to the security and compliance risks that need to be managed.
Unfortunately, the fast changes in the digital economy have also introduced intimidating risks. The financial services industry is under attack by numerous significant cybercriminal threats. In many cases where certain systems were breached, the method of compromise was attributed to simple configuration errors or missed patches that, in turn, gave rise to a critical vulnerability. Given the constant competitive pressure and the current economic strain to operate more efficiently, due care to address security risks is more challenging than ever.
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.
