Security Challenges for Healthcare Organizations

Healthcare organizations have a heightened need to get their security and compliance right for a number of reasons. 

First, healthcare has greater liability and regulatory requirements than almost any other industry. HIPAA alone includes 154 separate requirements with defined audit procedures, making monitoring them all an enormous task. Any breach can result in hefty government fines and an erosion of customer trust. In fact, healthcare is the target of 25% of data breaches, costing an average of $408 per lost or stolen record (Ponemon/IBM). 

Additionally, due to their growth through mergers and acquisitions, many healthcare organizations struggle with an influx of devices that are out of date or don’t work with their infrastructure. This makes it difficult to maintain uniformity in the environment and deploy an additional agent to detect and prevent cyber attacks.

To meet these challenges, many institutions use traditional Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), but those products only detect cyber attacks. Incoming events need to be addressed in real-time before any data is lost. Using a SIEM effectively often requires the build-out of a 24/7 Security Operations Center (SOC) with a team of IT security analysts to sift through alerts, determine the severity of each, take action on the most important ones, and maintain the system on an ongoing basis. In short, a SOC demands a skillset and resources that not all healthcare IT teams have available to them.
