Securing Healthcare Data in a COVID World
Posted September 1, 2020
- Healthcare data is some of the most personal information any of us have. In the midst of the global pandemic, many people whose information would not have entered medical systems normally are being hospitalized and data about them is being collected.
- One of the easiest changes that many healthcare organizations are already adopting is to update credential management policies.
- Data should be encrypted on the hard drive, requiring authorized access to view readable data, and should also be encrypted in transit. Some of the best options available for data encryption on the storage device are blockchain solutions. Blockchain is especially important for healthcare data due to the personal and sensitive nature of the data.
- We should be taking every measure possible to ensure this data does not fall into the wrong hands.
