The statistics regarding data breaches in the healthcare industry make worrying reading. Research reveals that this sector contains the most cloud data breaches while almost half of the organisations in this industry state that they have either encountered a data breach or failed a compliance audit in the past year, according to a Harris Poll survey.
Cyber criminals exploit weaknesses and vulnerabilities in health care systems because they can collect information that can be sold for a premium on the black market. Not only this, but a lot of healthcare companies and pharmacies do not have sophisticated security systems in place, making them an easy target. As cyber criminals increasingly target the medical sector, you need to ensure you keep your business and your patients protected, which is what Retail Secure can assist you with.
RetailCompli is our cloud-based management service that can help to protect your business with an array of innovative features. We will create a bespoke security structure that will ensure your pharmacy or healthcare business is operating to the highest levels of cyber and network security. We will separate the Cardholder Data Environment (CDE) from all other traffic, and we can also segregate medical data records, to ensure that there is limited access to secure information, which will in turn reduce the risk of a data breach and ensure that your organisation is PCI DSS compliant.
One of the reasons why cyber criminals can easily extract personal details and medical information is because the majority of health organisations have an open network where everything from POS systems to the back office computer to shopping tablets are on the same network. This means that everything from social media to Extranet to email has access to sensitive information. Here at Retail Secure, we segregate the LAN network to ensure that this is no longer the case. We also offer 24/7 monitoring to give you all of the support you need.
A data breach is devastating for any business, and with more and more cyber criminals targeting the health care industry; you can’t afford to spend another day putting your organisation and customers at risk. Contact us today.
