Healing Data Leakage in the Modern Health Care Environment

The move to electronic records (EHR) in the health care industry – across providers, insurance companies and a multitude of third parties – has increased the speed of sharing records, and in theory, the quality of care provided to individuals. However, this instant-access ecosystem also introduces increased risk – as the more users that have access to sensitive information, the greater the risks of data leakage.

Replacing the “need-to-know” with the “need-to-share” approach may have fueled collaboration with partners, but is also needs to be balanced with the ease of management and the security of the system. Very often, these are at odds – and organizations end up either sharing more than they should or not sharing anywhere near enough.

Come learn how an Attribute Based Access Control approach can help you put a solution in place that will reduce the likelihood of not only human error, but enforce granular data access controls across the ecosystem.

What you’ll learn:

  • The challenge of access control in the health care ecosystem
  • How to leverage your data to make smart access control decisions
  • How to meet compliance and regulatory demands

Federal agencies invest heavily in protecting data from external threat actors, but the insider threat problem requires a new approach to access control. While protecting data is paramount, that requirement must be balanced with the need to share certain information across a variety of use case scenarios within and across agencies/departments.
