Healthcare Information Security
Healthcare organizations remain under attack. They are especially vulnerable targets for data breaches due to the value directly associated with, as well as linked to, the abundant data stored on their networks. Rigorously protecting confidential patient information is more important—and more challenging—than ever before.

Mobile App Security 101
According to security experts, the majority of mobile apps used in healthcare today are open to HIPAA violations, hacking, and data theft. Almost any app is vulnerable: messaging, mobile EHR/EMR/ERX/PHR, telehealth, patient portals, customer service, wellness, health insurance apps, and many more. In fact, the nature of the app is not so important. Any unprotected app can serve as an open gateway for hackers to obtain PHI.
