Cyber security in the Health Care industry

By Miss Hessah - Apr 14 2017

This is probably the only podcast that directly associates cyber security need and the HealthCare industry failure to recognize its importance. I highly recommend listening to this podcast and the narratives presented by the guests who understand the grave implications of a ignorant industry.

So here’s what keeps me up at night:   The neighbor’s barking dog. The stray firecracker that goes off at 2:30. And Patients.  Millions of patients.  And when I say patients, I really mean people.  Millions of people whose most intimate details… their stories…have been laid bare for the world to see on behalf of the highest bidder.  Millions of people who have to wonder who knows about their recent bout of depression.  Or who knows about their history of high blood pressure and their medication for it?  What about that cancer scare?  And if that isn’t enough, that these people have to wonder, whose got my social security number?  How many accounts have been opened in my name?  How many purchases made with my credit? Collectively, we have to wonder if we can ever be truly secure?  Are our physical and virtual lives irreversibly intertwined? Is the idea of privacy even a valid concept anymore?  These questions, for which there are no easy answers, are some of the things that keep me up at night. I bet they keep you up too.  So here’s what keeps me going each day.  For every malicious hacker, there is a white-hatted one.  For every attack on a server, there is a dedicated IT security professional ready to respond.  For every malicious line of code, there is one created to defend against the malice.So how do we respond?  How does the health care sector deal with the cybersecurity issue?  Who do we look to for leadership and guidance through the battles ahead of us?   Welcome to HIMSS’s new health IT cybersecurity podcast, Code Red.  Code Red focuses on cybersecurity challenges facing health care today & tomorrow, featuring the voices of the people on the front lines. The goal of the podcast is to explore the interplay between the people, processes & technologies that make up an organization’s cybersecurity posture from both a leadership & skills-based perspective.In this episode we will discuss the existential threat of cybersecurity attacks in the age of ubiquitous digital health and the range of current cyber-security threats. We’ll talk to HIMSS Privacy & Security Committee member, Ram Ramadoss, Vice President – Privacy, Information Security & EHR Oversight at Catholic Health Initiatives, the nation’s third-largest nonprofit health system.  -Rod Piechowski (Host) This Episode’s Guest:  Ram RamadossVice President, Privacy, Information Security & EHR OversightCatholic Health InitiativesMember-Cybersecurity Task Force, Department of Health & Human ServicesLearn more about Ram: https://www.linkedin.com/in/ramramadossFollow Catholic Health Initiatives on Twitter: @CHI_UpdatesMore on Catholic Health Initiatives: http://www.catholichealthinitiatives.org/ This Episode's TranscriptRead it here This Episode’s News: 2016 HIMSS Cybersecurity Survey ResultsDownload a copy of the 2016 HIMSS Cybersecurity Survey results.  Cybercriminal TheDarkOverlord stole more patient records and medical images than originally thought, InfoArmor reportsThe hacker broke into organizations on the HL7 network, the security firm has found, and has since put those records up for sale on the dark web.

Rank #3: Episode #17: Artificial Intelligence, Ethics, and Security

Podcast cover
Read more
Artificial intelligence (or AI) is a hot topic again and we wanted to have a conversation about its use in healthcare, and what are some of the ethical implications of that. If we’re going to use AI for decision support, whether for clinical or security applications, there are questions we need to ask. And we should probably ask those questions before we get too far down the road to AI nirvana. Our guest today is Mike Lyons, Director of Product Development at FairWarning. As you’ll hear in our discussion, the questions are layered, create more questions, and force us to think more deeply about our relationship with technology. Mike addresses promise vs. reality, expectations, decision making, values, the role of vendors, and ethics by design. This Episode’s GuestMike LyonsDirector, Product DevelopmentFairWarningConnect with Mike

Rank #4: Episode #16: How Security Impacts the Patient Experience

Podcast cover
Read more
Commitment is critical to a successful security program, and that commitment isn’t just to the technology and processes. The human component is especially important, whether you want your customers to have confidence in your organization’s ability to protect their data, or whether you need to persuade the C-Suite that the benefits of a solid security plan outweigh the costs. Is there a relationship between security and the patient experience? Do patients and their families notice security issues when they’re in contact with our clinicians and staff? Does it matter? Welcome to Code Red, the HIMSS’ podcast on information security in healthcare. Our guest on this episode is Dan Dodson, President of Fortified Health Security. Dan and I had a chance to sit down at the HIMSS global conference in Las Vegas to discuss how to better manage the way security is perceived by customers and staff. In this conversation, we also discuss the tricky area of demonstrating ROI on security.  This Episode’s GuestDan L. Dodson, MBAPresident  Fortified Health SecurityConnect with Dan

Rank #5: Episode #15: Cybersecurity Call to Action: Protect Your Patients and Organization with a Cybersecurity Framework

Podcast cover
Read more
The HIMSS Cybersecurity Call to Action includes an appeal to use a cybersecurity framework across the sector. There are several out there to choose from and, as we state in our call, HIMSS recommends the NIST Cybersecurity Framework. In our latest cybersecurity survey, we asked respondents whether or not they used a framework, and if so, which one they used. While we learned that the majority of respondents that do use a framework use NIST, HITRUST and Critical Security Controls, we also learned that about 17 percent of the respondents use no framework at all. Welcome to Code Red, the HIMSS cybersecurity podcast. In this episode, we wanted to look more deeply into the issue of frameworks how they’re used and implemented; I spoke to Bayardo Alvarez, director of information technology at Boston Pain Care, and Sean Murphy, Vice president and CISO at Premera Blue Cross about their choice and use of frameworks.As you’ll hear, they’ve made different choices, represent very different organizations, and are at different phases of implementation.   This Episode’s GuestSean Murphy VP, Chief Information Security Officer Premera Blue CrossConnect with SeanBayardo AlvarezDirector, Information Technology  Boston Paincare Center Connect with Bayardo

Podcast cover

There’s a shortage of people qualified to work in cybersecurity, and we need to do something about that. But what is that “something?” Let’s be honest here, we’re not going to change that situation overnight. It takes years to acquire the kind of skills needed to pursue the education, experience and credentials required. But what can we do in the meantime? We’ve said it before on Code Red: we’re all involved in security, to one degree or another. What can we do to effectively raise awareness and change behavior?This episode’s guest offers some insights. While at our annual conference in Orlando, Code Red sat down to discuss these and other issues with Servio Medina, CISSP, Chief Operating Officer of the Cybersecurity Policy Branch at the US Defense Health Agency. Servio sees opportunities in changing the way we think about educating each other in this field, and discusses burnout, math, lifestyles and other topics, and how they relate to cyber-education. After listening to this episode, the phrase “It makes sense to me” will take on a whole new dimension. This Episode’s GuestServio Medina, CISSPCheif Operating Officer, Cybersecurity Policy BranchUS Defense Health AgencyLearn more about ServioFollow Servio on Twitter: @serviofmedinaLearn about the US Defense Health AgencyThis Episode’s Audience AskHow does your organization "make sense" of an enterprise-wide approach to cybersecurity?  How has your organizational culture around cybersecurity changed over the past few years?  Any lessons to share with others?
