Security for Healthcare Organizations

Our Solutions – For the Healthcare Industry

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) mandates total privacy for all sensitive patient information. This mandate goes beyond a simple passive guarantee not to divulge any information, and requires active measures to be taken to ensure that patient information cannot be stolen or overheard accidentally.

In order to be compliant with HIPAA, any healthcare organization, be it a hospital, doctor’s office, insurance office, or college campus that provides healthcare to its students, must have comprehensive cyber security measures in place. This can be a daunting task, especially since the prevalence of mobile devices means that much of the information being dealt with isn’t confined to the organization’s premises.

Digital Hands offers comprehensive managed cyber security for all forms of healthcare providers, protecting both them and their patients against cyber threats. This includes:

  • Authentication. Strict authentication measures regulate access to the system in the cloud, ensuring that users only have access to information they’re specifically authorized to have, no matter what location they log in from.
  • Network Access Control. All outside devices connecting to the network are closely monitored and kept in compliance with strict regulations, to prevent information theft, malware, and other threats.
  • Incident Response Preparedness. Digital Hands staff is alerted automatically as soon as a breach takes place, allowing them to contain the threat before it can do any further damage.
  • Web Application Firewall. Attempts to penetrate the healthcare provider’s web applications in order to steal patient information or perpetrate other malicious acts, are immediately detected and blocked.
