Click through for tips from security experts from across the industry to help keep mobile health care information safe, as identified by ID Experts.

Mobile devices — thumb drives, smartphones, external hard drives, tablets and laptops — are increasingly exposing protected health information (PHI) in the health care space, with threat risks growing, according to the Department of Homeland Security. Mobile devices pose significant risks for privacy incidents for healthcare organizations, providers and entities responsible for safeguarding protected health information (PHI) under Federal HITECH and HIPAA regulations. Since patient data can be moved, processed and shared via personal cell phones and tiny USB flash drives, the “bring your own device” phenomenon can wreak havoc on a hospital. To assist health care entities in reducing privacy incidents resulting from mobile risks, ID Experts has rounded up top security tips from experts — representing legal, data breach prevention, technology, health care IT, and security — for health care organizations.
