Healthcare is under cyberattack – are you protected?

Challenges in the Healthcare Industry

The healthcare industry faces significant challenges in protecting sensitive data due to stringent regulations and the critical impact of technology on patient outcomes. Consequently, identity and access management (IAM) become an exceptionally demanding area within healthcare data protection. Effectively managing access to healthcare data while ensuring regulatory compliance and optimizing patient care requires a robust IAM solution capable of addressing the nuances of security, privacy, and technological advancements. By successfully navigating these challenges, healthcare organizations can strengthen their data protection measures and enhance the overall security posture of the industry as a whole.

Multi-factor Authentication

Implementing MFA adds an extra layer of security to user authentication processes without impeding patient care or causing frustration for clinicians. By requiring users to provide multiple forms of identification, such as a password and a unique verification code sent to their mobile device, the risk of unauthorized access is significantly reduced.

Multi-factor Authentication

Self-service Password Reset

Introducing self-service password reset and recovery options allows users to regain access to their accounts without the need for help desk assistance. This not only enhances convenience for patients and healthcare professionals but also reduces the burden on IT support staff, allowing them to allocate their time and resources to more critical tasks. 

Self-Service Password Reset
