10 Steps to Maturing your Healthcare Cybersecurity
5 Core Challenges of Healthcare Cyber Professionals
Cyber Professionals in healthcare face the pain points of balancing access and security, keeping up with the constantly evolving threat landscape, managing regulatory compliance, building a security-focused culture, and demonstrating the effectiveness of security measures.
Ensuring Data Security & Privacy
Balancing the need for access to sensitive data with the need to secure it. This can involve implementing complex access controls, encryption methods, and security protocols that can be difficult to manage and enforce.
Staying Ahead of Evolving Threats
Keeping up with the constantly evolving threat landscape can be a challenge. This requires continuous monitoring, threat intelligence gathering, and the implementation of new security measures to address emerging threats.
Managing Compliance and Regulatory Requirements
Healthcare organizations are subject to a range of regulatory requirements, including HIPAA, GDPR, and PCI-DSS. Ensuring compliance with these regulations requires significant resources, including staff time and specialized expertise.
Building a Security-Focused Culture
Encouraging employees to prioritize security can be a challenge. This requires ongoing training and awareness programs, as well as the implementation of policies and procedures that make it easy for employees to comply with security requirements.
Demonstrating the Value of the Security Program
Demonstrating the ROI of security investments can be challenging. This requires the ability to measure and report on the effectiveness of security measures, as well as the ability to communicate the importance of security to stakeholders and decision-makers.
