LTPAC Facilities Need Stronger Data Security Measures. Last year was a record year for Data Breaches and Healthcare information is now more vulnerable than ever. According to a gemalto report “Healthcare organizations encountered the greatest number of breaches among all other industries in 2017.”
Given the forces at play, LTPAC providers need to make sure patient data is secure. Layering your security technology is highly recommended by Cyber Security Professionals. One type of technology to include in your stack is Multi-factor Authentication (MFA). This gives your IT department control over secure passwords and reduces the threat of weak password creation and management.
MFAs also provides the ability for single sign on to make it easier for users to access their applications. Rather than memorizing different passwords, users login once and connect to all associated applications.
Consider these questions when looking at MFA’s for your organization:
Will it full-fill HIPAA & HITECH Logon Requirements?
Will it provide Secure Logon Access into EMR Data?
Is it Card-based Multi-Factor Authentication?
Does it work with existing physical access badges?
Does it work on Cloud, Enterprise Servers, Small Business, Networks, or Stand Alone Computers?
