An effective cybersecurity policy starts with a well-trained hospital staff

From the January/February 2018 issue of HealthCare Business News magazine

In the future, I see health care organizations hiring highly credentialed privacy and security individuals, taking the necessary steps to maintain these professionals through establishing departments in various areas of practice. These areas of practice, including technology, cybersecurity and patient privacy, will be increasingly accountable to the CEO and CFO, showing the expanded priority placed on the need for privacy and security.

In my 16 years of work in privacy, I’ve never seen an impetus like what we are currently in, with privacy and security becoming more predominant in all organizations, specifically health care. Patients trust us to care for their ailments and sickness, but they now trust us to keep their data secure. This trust is paramount and the responsibilities are incredible. But our patients truly deserve to be confident that their sensitive health information is safeguarded against unauthorized collection, use, disclosure and disposal, only being accessed on a need-to-know basis. The future of cybersecurity and patient privacy will hinge on understanding and protecting this trust.
