While medical ID theft continues to rise, let’s ask, what are healthcare providers doing to change this epidemic?

In the United Kingdom the answer is simple: not enough. According to a survey of 250 CIOs, CTOs, and IT Managers employed by the UK National Health Service, the opinion of these employees is much different than what’s actually in place.

76% of respondents stated they have adequate protection against cybercrime & data loss, but their security practices lead us to believe otherwise.

While 84% of those surveyed believe that encryption is necessary to combat cybercrime, encryption is the majority of the time not even used:

  • 10% feel encryption is ‘well established’ within their organization
  • 59% encrypt emails
  • 49% encrypt files shared on the network
  • 34% encrypt data stored in the cloud

This survey also noted that NHS organizations are currently facing significant IT security challenges, including providers using a variety of devices to access records, mobile & remote working, and the tightening of budgets.

It’s also important to note that the NHS experienced more data breaches in 2015 than any other sector in the UK, representing nearly half of all incidents tracker by the UK Information Commissioner’s Office.
