Freedoms Created by Technologies Bring New Risks
JoTo PR Client, InfoBionic, was featured in a Healthcare IT News article titled, Securing Remote Devices More Important Than Ever.
Keeping patients out of the hospital has long been a mantra of the healthcare industry. Medical devices supporting that trend have emerged in droves. Wireless devices, remote monitoring devices and smartphone-based trackers all have enabled physicians to gather data while patients live more normal lives.
The freedoms that come with these technologies, however, also bring new risks to the security of patient data and the integrity of hospital networks.
Stuart Long, CEO of InfoBionic, said the kinds of intrusions these devices invite range from inconveniences to serious theft and potentially even life-threatening interference. Knowing what kinds of things hackers aim to do and which ways they might break in gives hospitals a better sense of how to develop and manage security policies.
