Protect What Matters Most – Patient Health Information

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

Cybersecurity in the healthcare industry has even more at stake than stolen protected health information (PHI). A cyberattack 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 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 has never been more pressing.

Spirion 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.
