Executive Summary

This paper looks at how the rise in data security breaches is a wakeup call for the healthcare industry. It then considers the steps healthcare providers can take to protect their data and so avoid financial loss, preserve brand reputation, and demonstrate regulatory compliance. To protect their infrastructures, most healthcare providers today rely on antivirus software, firewalls, intrusion protection, and other measures. While these are important parts of a layered defense, they're not enough for today's threats. For example, they wouldn't be able to prevent an instance of medical identity theft. Instead, healthcare providers need to focus on the critical information itself and protect it.
