Cybersecurity Protection in Healthcare: How Accreditation Can Mitigate Your Risk

The incidence of cyberattacks across healthcare have more than doubled in the last five years, and the financial and reputational impacts of a breach can have a monumental impact on a healthcare entity. While the industry continues to work toward securing better interoperability across its stakeholders, it is not keeping pace in its efforts to stop or at least mitigate the damage that cyber threats and attacks can have on healthcare organizations.

In a race against the hackers who are becoming more sophisticated in their infiltration techniques, federal regulators, government legislators and standards development organizations like the Electronic Healthcare Network Accreditation Commission (EHNAC) are creating more stringent guidelines and more comprehensive risk mitigation strategies to safeguard protected health information (PHI). Since its inception in 1993, EHNAC has remained on the forefront of the crucial issues that affect the exchange and security of healthcare data, and the commission’s tireless efforts to align with the industry’s most current cybersecurity regulations and best
practices have reaffirmed this leadership position.
