On a daily basis, healthcare organizations are one data breach away from devastating consequences. Identification, financial medical information and sensitive data are in a constant state of susceptibility. On this crucial topic, CertainSafe®’s Vice President, Steven Russo was recently featured on Becker’s Hospital Review for an article he created on the importance of healthcare information security. Becker’s Hospital Review features up-to-date business and legal news pertaining to hospitals and health systems.
“To compound the problem, many of the popular file sharing software programs and services currently in use by healthcare organizations and medical practitioners are not HIPAA compliant,” Russo wrote. “The need to securely share HIPAA categorized information in real-time has also precipitated a tremendous fear of what a data breach can do to an organization. The healthcare industry must comply with standards for protection of Personally Identifiable Information as well as HIPAA data. Taking a short cut and using a non-compliant system could be a costly violation. Technology is available today that provides significant aid in this area, including solutions that provide not only for HIPAA but PCI Level 1 DSS Certification as well.”
