Protecting Patient Records

Healthcare providers and patients continue to be the target of cyber criminals due to high demand for personal records on the black market along with the relative ease at which this compromised data can be monetized for nefarious purposes. In fact, the cost of a breached healthcare record cost $429 in 2019, compared to the average cost of a breached record which is $150, making these records all too attractive to cybercriminals.

NNT recently discovered sensitive medical data related to 13 million medical exams on hundreds of computers connected to the public internet. Watch our latest video warning to learn more, or read our exclusive articles with SecurityWeek and HealthITSecurity.

Achieve Continuous HIPAA Compliance with NNT

The United States Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, or more commonly known as HIPAA, helps ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of critical and private patient information from compromise. With few exceptions, if an organization exchanges data related to the healthcare profession, they’re subject to HIPAA. These organizations, also known as Covered Entities (CE), include:

  • Healthcare providers, including doctors, hospitals, etc.
  • Health insurance providers and health plan clearing houses
  • Self-insured businesses
  • Businesses that sponsor group health plans and/or provide assistance to employees with regards to medical coverage

NNT helps organizations ensure non-stop HIPAA compliance by continuously monitoring for any unauthorized or unapproved changes while prioritizing vulnerabilities to ensure that health data is not compromised, including the introduction of malware, and even ransomware, which could have potentially tragic consequences on businesses and human lives. Learn about the technical requirements outlined in HIPAA and which requirements NNT can help you fulfill by downloading our new HIPAA solution brief.

Go Beyond HIPAA Compliance and Elevate your Security with the CIS Controls
 

The CIS Controls are a recommended set of prioritized actions for cyber defense designed to reduce your attack surface. This pragmatic approach to security outlines actionable ways to stop today’s most pervasive and dangerous cyber attacks by adopting basic cybersecurity best practices.

The CIS Controls compliment the HIPAA security rule and contain many of the same requirements. Since these controls are updated regularly based on real-world threat patterns, the CIS Controls can help organizations enhance their cybersecurity strategy to reduce risk outside of HIPAA regulations. The CIS Benchmarks can also be used to securely configure workstations used to handle electronic protected health information.

Help improve your cyber hygiene by combining the CIS Controls, CIS Benchmarks and HIPAA Compliance.
