Protect patient data and systems from third-party risk
Despite cybersecurity being a significant area of concern, healthcare organizations are, now more than ever, needing to rely on a higher number of third-party, mission-critical technologies (along with their support and maintenance). Because of this, hundreds of vendor technicians are logging into the systems of a typical healthcare organization each week. Many organizations treat these third-party vendors like internal employees when it comes to remote access, yet 63% of data breaches are caused by third-party. Data breaches are not only financially devastating, but a down system can be life-threatening to a patient.
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 alleviate third-party vendor risk.
