Stolen personal information can have negative financial impacts, but stolen medical information cuts to the very core of personal privacy. Medical identity theft already costs billions of dollars each year, and altered medical information can put a person’s health at risk through misdiagnosis, delayed treatment, or incorrect prescriptions. Yet, the use of mobile devices to store, access, and transmit electronic health care records is outpacing the privacy and security protections on those devices.
So how can health care organizations better secure mobile devices that interact with patient health information?
Attend this free webcast to learn how the NCCoE worked with the health care industry and technology vendors to apply standards and commercially available cybersecurity products to formulate a reference design that health care organizations can use to improve their security posture.
Speaker: Gavin O’Brien, Computer Scientist, NCCoE, NIST
