The right approach to information security is critical to achieving PDPA compliance. For many organisations, this requires a significant revision of their security strategy and tactics.
What makes PDPA unique and a challenge is that it requires firms to implement it via a risk-based framework. Since it covers personal data, PDPA focuses on ensuring the correct governance structure, policies and operational practices in place. In addition to monitoring, detection and incident response.
Nettitude Helps Firms With The Information Security Measures Necessary For PDPA Compliance via:
- Gap assessment against the PDPA standards for information security and incident response practices, to produce a roadmap to compliance.
- Monitoring services to support the information security and incident response aspects of PDPA.
Frequently Asked Questions About Healthcare Cybersecurity
What does penetration testing involve?
In penetration testing for healthcare organisations, our experts simulate a hacking environment to identify any vulnerabilities within your system. Ethical hackers will penetrate the healthcare system like a threat actor would, but leave your data intact. They will create a report of these vulnerabilities and offer advice on how to eliminate them so your data remains secure.
How do you create an effective cybersecurity strategy for a healthcare organisation?
To create an effective healthcare cybersecurity framework, Nettitude recommends first identifying what your aims are and what you are trying to protect. This will determine your strategy. Then, you can decide on a framework from three broad types: control, programme, and risk frameworks. From here you can define your risk assessment goals and implement security controls. Our experts at Nettitude can assist you with this process.
What is the biggest risk in healthcare cybersecurity?
One of the biggest risks in healthcare cybersecurity is Internet of Things (IoT) devices. The internet-connected implements are vital to many hospital and healthcare functions, so much so that they have their own term: Internet of Medical Things (IoMT). These often centralise data collections for easy access, so when these are hacked, it can be very damaging. You can increase your IoMT security by educating your staff, monitoring the network, using VLANs, and devices that meet certified IoT standards.
