By Janet Vogel – The recently-opened Health Sector Cybersecurity Coordination Center (HC3) has been buzzing with the sound of industry collaboration and coordination. HC3 will host tours, and brief stakeholder organizations to share capabilities and services.
By Suzanne B. Schwartz – Ensuring medical devices are safeguarded from cyber intrusions is a shared responsibility across the medical device ecosystem. At the FDA, we deal with cybersecurity in the context of the total product lifecycle of a device.
By Art Gross – It’s no secret that employees violate security policies. Whether we’d like to admit it or not, there’s a good chance we have all violated a security policy once upon a time.
By Sonia Arista – Most cybercriminal behavior can be reduced to two basic economic drivers. The first is to look for targets with valuable resources that can be easily turned into profits. And the second is to expend as few resources as possible to access those resources.
By Art Gross – Cybercriminals have been targeting the healthcare industry for years. As healthcare has become the second largest sector of the U.S. economy, it should come as no surprise that the industry receives special attention from hackers.
By Matt Fisher – The threat and occurrence of data breaches receive frequent attention in the healthcare industry. It often feels as though a new breach (or more) is reported on an almost daily basis.
By Tom Gilheany – Cybersecurity is more critical than ever in healthcare. A survey of U.S. physicians by Accenture and the AMA found that 83 percent of physician practices have experienced some form of cyberattack, such as phishing and viruses.
We regularly publish resources on cybersecurity to help physician practices, hospitals and business associates understand how to best thwart attacks and minimize exposure if there is a breach.
By Art Gross – Human-error; we talk about it all the time, but what exactly do we mean? Human-error occurs when an individual performs a task or does something with an unintended outcome.
By Kurt Long – Mergers and acquisitions are on an upward trend in the U.S. healthcare industry. Last year alone, more than 50 hospitals merged. As healthcare organizations join forces, their goal is to create operational synergies that will better serve their patients.
By William Hyman – The New York State chapter of HiMSS met on June 13th in the unusual setting of a Broadway theater (which, like almost all Broadway theaters wasn’t actually on Broadway).
