How to alleviate healthcare third-party data breach risk
Because of the reliance on third-party mission-critical technologies, healthcare organizations put themselves at risk by allowing support and maintenance vendors the same access they would allow for their employees. This presents a clear danger as 63% of all data breaches are caused by a third-party breach. Healthcare organizations must have an adequate system in place to identify, control and audit vendors because a down system is not only financially devastating but can be life-threatening to patients.
In this webinar, Justin Strackany, Chief Customer Officer at SecureLink and Tony Howlett, CISO at SecureLink will discuss how to align your organization with HIPAA and HITECH requirements and how to protect your organization from a third-party data breach.
