PRIVACY & SECURITY FORUM: A HIMSS EVENT
Boston, MA - December 5 - 7, 2016
Protected health information (PHI) and Personally Identifiable Information (PII) are extremely valuable to cybercriminals as they pay more for health records than any other personal records. Thus, hackers are increasingly targeting healthcare organizations and their ecosystem. Patients, providers, contract research organizations, academia, and others need to exchange sensitive information, such as when collaborating on clinical trials, delivering care via telemedicine and communicating with patients. Increasingly, mobile devices are being used to capture data from IoT sensors and medical devices. PHI and PII must be safeguarded every step of the way, therefore, identity verification and authentication are essential. But what other security measures need to be taken? This session will highlight major emerging risks to PHI, PII and offer timely insights on mitigating those risks by applying best practices for securing data on mobile devices and patient information from medical devices or other IoT devices.
