Safeguarding health data

Safeguarding health data. [Newspaper] (2020)


Healthcare sectors around the world have been experiencing a spike this year, no thanks to the deadly virus SARS-CoV-2, the strain of coronavirus that causes a coronavirus pandemic beginning this year. With the significant rise in the number of patients going for screening, consultation, and treatment, it is common to ask this question: How safe is our healthcare data safety? IntSights' chief security officer (CSO), Etay Maor, said although healthcare data safety is something hospitals, clinics and providers take very seriously, unfortunately – so do cybercriminals who will take advantage of the data and gain profit from it. "They know that this type of data (healthcare) can be monetised. While there are regulations in place and a constant increase in the investment in cybersecurity in the healthcare sector, at the same time we still witness two particularly important issues: basic security hygiene mistakes, and an increased interest by sophisticated attackers," said Maor.
