When your healthcare institution starts to scale, technical and network needs can multiply exponentially. This means that even the simplest tasks, like applying operating system (OS) patches or making sure that virus definitions are up to date, can quickly turn into a long, drawn out, tedious process that has to be repeated on hundreds or even thousands of desktops.
Security Information Event Monitoring (SIEM) solutions have been around for decades, but today SEIM is more important than ever as IT departments grow more distributed, complex and difficult to manage. The role of a SEIM solution is to provide real time alerts to security analysts regarding potential security risks and compliance issues. The information a SIEM presents is the result of very sophisticated event logging, data collection and analysis.
The healthcare industry currently finds itself at high risk for ransomware attacks. In fact, healthcare has the fifth highest number of ransomware attacks among all industries. But what makes this sector a uniquely attractive target?
Healthcare institutions are highly dynamic and complex places where medical practitioners, patients, and equipment need to be tracked and kept secure. At the same time, the medical sector is also under pressure to continuously maintain compliance while enhancing the level of care and patient satisfaction.
As a result, the industry is embracing the digital disruption that’s transforming the world. This digital revolution in healthcare will be driven by the Internet of Things (IoT) and mobile technology that’s heavily dependent on wireless networks.
The healthcare industry is all ready to embrace the “digital disruption” that is redefining nearly every industry. Technology not only changes the way healthcare organizations operate, it has the ability to change the way that healthcare is delivered. The idea of customer-centric healthcare systems, where patients have better access to information and better quality care, is driving the adoption of digital services that include mobile health records, telemedicine, and integrated-care apps.
