The first quarter of 2020 has not been easy on the healthcare industry, especially with COVID-19 spreading waves of chaos across the world. With the unprecedented levels of data being generated every second, safeguarding patient-related information has only become more crucial and challenging in this period of crisis. The past couple of years have testified the capability of healthcare to combat the risks of data breaches, ransomware attacks, and the risks posed by IoT and consumer access to electronic health information. This year, healthcare organizations are refurbishing their technologies to solve the problem of frequently attempted thefts of patient data. Especially with the instability created by the pandemic, healthcare organizations are taking every step to shore up their defenses and protect their assets from the bad actors.
For instance, to fight the ever-mutating and advanced phishing attacks and brute force attacks, healthcare firms are introducing the “second line” of defense in web filtering that blocks malicious links from unknown resources. Subsequently, healthcare providers are modifying their strategies with the aid of blockchain technology, cloud-based securities, secure direct messaging, health information exchange (HIE), and biometric security applications. These efforts are providing an additional security layer to server communication and protecting data from hackers.
In addition to this, the use of next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) is empowering healthcare enterprises to utilize progressive policies and security applications through a more comprehensive integration of nodes. NGFWs allow vast volumes of data storage, impart flexibility to existing security models, and provide higher-quality security for patient care through multi-vector threat detection and response. Besides, healthcare providers are presently relying on AI-based electronic health record (EHR) systems to share information with their patients. The smart integration of AI with EHR is not only enhancing workflows but is also prompt in detecting network traffic shifts and blocking malicious attacks.
