Strong Authentication for Healthcare: Protect Identities and Health Information

The nature, quantity and quality of data collected by the health sector make it an attractive target for hackers. As a result, cyber attacks are multiplying against hospitals, medical services, doctors and healthcare companies that have not yet generalised strong authentication to protect access to their information systems.

The health sector is in constant evolution. On the one hand, technology has opened up the field of opportunities for patient care. On the other hand, the challenges of dematerialization and digitalization of uses are leading organizations in the sector to adapt their IS to a complex ecosystem of compliance considerations, security risks and costs.

With the evolution of information systems in the cloud, risks are multiplied and the stakes for the security of health data are amplified for IT services.

Health information is highly sensitive. Identities and access to the IS must be secured to protect it.

Health organizations have become vulnerable.

The vast majority of healthcare organizations process and store Protected Health Information (PHI), which consists of sensitive patient data, such as medical history, social security numbers, personal financial data, etc. This sensitive information is an attractive target for phishing and credential stuffing attacks.

health data security

Many risk factors

User mobility

The mobility of your user populations - patients, partners and internal employees - requires the IS to be open to the outside world, with resulting vulnerabilities in terms of data integrity, confidentiality or traceability of exchanges.

BYOD

With the growing trend for "Bring Your Own Device" in the medical environment, confidential data can easily find its way into locations not secured by the organization's tools.

Cloud computing

The implementation of technological convergences (computers, networks, exchange protocols, biomedical devices) and the consolidation of data in the cloud make digital information systems an attractive target.

MFA as a security solution

The implementation of a multi-factor strong authentication (MFA) solution allows to protect and fight against cyber-threats that weigh on organizations in the sector, healthcare professionals and patients. More than that, it can add value by promoting organizational agility, user mobility and authentication experience.

But be careful to choose your strong authentication solution carefully. Not all MFA solutions are the same.
