Healthcare organizations have historically focused on compliance-related security issues of patient privacy and the management of billing fraud. While these issues are still prominent, the new era of patient portals and online data accessibility for healthcare workers has raised emerging security concerns that extend beyond compliance to include identity theft and patient safety. It is not surprising that the security roots in compliance continue to dominate agendas, but there is a growing realization that measures healthcare organizations have in place are insufficient to handle today’s threats.
IDology, along with Mercator Advisory Group, hosted an informational hour-long webinar discussing Mercator Advisory Group and IDology research on identity fraud with a focus on the healthcare industry. The webinar discusses risks and challenges the healthcare sector is facing from identity theft originating from online apps and mobile devices. Topics covered include:
- Identity theft has less to do with data breaches than many realize;
- Common methods used to access identity on mobile devices; and
- How mobile devices have affected how healthcare information is accessed.
