Why Healthcare Organizations Must Incorporate Data Privacy Into Their Cybersecurity Strategies – And How to Do It
Given the circumstances, the industry’s chief information security officers (CISOs) and their teams are firmly focused on implementing new tools and practices to better protect their digital assets.
If all of this sounds like a lot to take on, that’s because it is. Fortunately, cybersecurity and privacy compliance are not mutually exclusive disciplines, as steps are taken to best protect digital assets and devices serve as a solid foundation for an effective data privacy strategy: Security is about the prevention of unauthorized individuals from accessing data, whether it is intellectual property or the personally identifiable information (PII) of patients and employees.
After all, people are concerned about how their data is collected, managed, and protected. Keeping them in the dark may produce short-term gains, but will likely result in eventual regulatory violations/fines and reputational damage.
