  • How to use Zero Trust principles when securing your organization so that every user, device, and service within a network is fully authenticated multiple ways for more robust protection.
  • Why you should make multi-factor authentication a standard for all your security processes, whether your users are accessing your network remotely or on-site.
  • How to work toward a passwordless authentication model, including how biometrics can be more useful in a healthcare setting where it may be difficult to use physical authentication devices.

How healthcare could fall behind in the fight against cybersecurity threats

While healthcare organizations across the industry have a commitment to safeguard everything from confidential patient records to proprietary device information, some healthcare organizations are behind other industries when it comes to information security. Some of their challenges? Outdated technologies, insufficient training programs for employees, large numbers of open and shared devices, and failure to embrace multi-factor authentication.

This new report found that:

  • 69% of healthcare orgs say their security debt is at least “somewhat significant”
  • Over 33% say encouraging internal adoption, applying solutions across the organization, and getting solutions up and running have been the main challenges when implementing new security solutions
  • Only 56% claim their existing security solutions align with all regulatory requirements.

With so much sensitive data under their purvey, healthcare organizations have a responsibility to face these challenges and find solutions that help them implement robust security programs and prevent breaches and data loss.
