In today’s world, it is essential for health care organizations across the continuum of care to understand and manage cybersecurity risks. Protecting your organization and your patient’s health information will allow you to focus on what counts – providing quality care. Take a moment to ask yourself the following questions to determine if you are doing everything required to protect your patients’ health information:
Do you meet all the requirements of HIPAA?
Do you have adequate safeguards in place to protect your servers, workstations, mobile devices and data from unauthorized access?
Is all disclosed PHI expressly authorized and securely transmitted?
Do you process credit card payments and are you PCI compliant?
Do all of your users have unique IDs, complex passwords, and security access based on role?
Do you have up-to-date antivirus and antimalware protection on all of your computers?
If You Answered NO to Any of These Questions, Your Organization And Patient Health Information May Be At Risk.
