Healthcare Data Security

Protect What Matters Most – Patient Health Information

Balance patient privacy and access to care while meeting the requirements of federal, state, and industry healthcare data protection regulations.

Patient data security in the healthcare industry has even more at stake than stolen protected health information (PHI). A healthcare data breach could be the difference between life and death for patients. As more medical equipment is connected to IoT devices with poor security, any threat actor who can hack into a facility’s network could gain access and control a patient’s pacemaker, kidney machine, or other devices.

Because of the valuable information stored and transmitted within the medical industry, as well as the use of third-party technologies to streamline data sharing across providers, insurers, and other partners, hundreds of healthcare organizations fall victim to healthcare data breaches each year.

Like educational institutions, healthcare organizations manage a wide range of personal information beyond PHI, including financial and credit card information and insurance details. Some medical centers also offer educational opportunities, adding academic data to the information mix. The need for the healthcare industry to preemptively combat cybercrime and enforce patient data security has never been more pressing.

Spirion ensures healthcare data security and reduces the risk associated with PHI, test and lab results, insurance information, and intellectual property. With accurate visibility into sprawling data repositories, healthcare organizations can minimize sensitive data exposure, improve efficiencies and decision-making, and comply with industry, state, federal, and international privacy regulations like HIPAA, HITECH, PCI-DSS, FERPA, GLBA, and more.

We expected to find sensitive data in places such as our curriculum vitae but did not expect to find sensitive data going back as far as it did—in some files that date to 1996. With Spirion’s Data Platform, we have found and remediated a lot of data. It’s helped us understand the data we have.
