 SECURITY POLICIES & PROCEDURES

A firm’s information security policies and procedures create the roadmap for implementing security measures to protect its data assets. Every firm needs to be aware of the sensitivity of its data and its responsibilities for protecting it. Effective information security policies and procedures set the security tone for the entire organisation and make personnel aware of what is expected of them.

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.
