With continuous changes in the information security landscape and high profile breaches being announced on a seemingly weekly basis, healthcare providers need to ensure they are properly securing protected health information (PHI). A lack of patient confidence can greatly harm your organization’s reputation and affect your bottom line.
In this environment, it is the responsibility of healthcare providers’ boards of directors (BoD) to guide their organizations’ cyber security efforts through informed decision-making. This means that BoDs should be aware of the types and amount of data it possesses, security controls surrounding this data, risks facing the organization, and cyber security trends within the healthcare industry.
