    Securing Health Care Information

    Click through for five ways health care organizations can better protect protected health information (PHI) from a data breach, as identified by Mark Hickman, COO at WinMagic.

The world of health care has been drastically transformed through the development of electronic systems used to transmit data between physicians, diagnostic clinicians, lab techs and other practitioners. Although they have advanced patient care, these systems also make securing of protected health information (PHI) far more complicated than the old "lock and key" approach.

Although more than a year has passed since the cyber attack on health insurance giant Anthem, many industry experts are still asking questions: What went wrong? Who is at fault? Were there preventative measures that could've been taken? And while these questions have yet to be answered, immediate action must be taken to achieve better security. In this slideshow, Mark Hickman, COO at WinMagic, discusses the top five ways health care organizations can protect themselves from a data breach.
