Click through for results from a health care security survey, conducted by the Ponemon Institute on behalf of ID Experts.
While there seems to be a significant increase in the number of security incidents occurring in health care organizations, no one is quite sure whether it is happening because more incidents are being reported or if the number of incidents is actually increasing.
In a survey of 72 healthcare organizations, conducted by the Ponemon Institute on behalf of ID Experts, a provider of data breach prevention software, it’s clear that the loss of mobile computing devices and breaches caused by third-party applications are contributing to the problem. It's also clear that most health care organizations do not have the processes or funding in place to deal effectively with these issues, and that there is a marked increase in the number of incidents related to identity theft.
The overall conclusion of the study is that there has not been much progress made in health care security in the last year, with one notable exception: Organizations that have implemented electronic health records (EHR) are reporting that security has improved significantly as part of the process of digitizing medical records.
