How to Protect EHRs at Scale and With Crypto-Agility

HIMSS Learning Center Webinar

Alyssa Carlisle 0 272


Patients willingly share Personal Health Information (PHI) living in Electronic Health Records (EHRs) with trusted healthcare providers, yet how reliable are the controls in place to ensure continual privacy? When data is physically and digitally shared across so many networks, what protection scenarios must be considered? The answer, any and all. Cyber criminals are becoming more inventive every day, demanding action from healthcare networks to move at pace with their adversaries.

While budget and staffing continue to be named as the biggest issues in the healthcare IT, what steps can be taken to ensure security and overall trust to deliver the best patient care? The solution is to either increase budget/personnel or people or invest in agile automation.

During this webinar, you'll learn:

  • Widening threat landscape for EHR breach
  • How to securing EHRs containing PHI at scale
  • The benefits of investing in crypto-agile automation tools aimed at enhancing patient experience
