The path to greater healthcare security and more powerful behavioral analytics will require care providers to make strides with managing, training, governing and monitoring their users. Being able to correlate users with all systems they access is a must, but most care providers struggle with basic identity management.
Are some of the people within your healthcare organization behaving badly? Of course they are. No insult intended—it’s not just your organization. Every organization has a few bad actors scattered amongst all the great employees that comprise the bulk of the workforce.
In fact, statistics indicate that the majority of patient data breaches result from insider threats. The 2017 Verizon Data Breach Report notes that healthcare “…is the only industry where employees are the predominant threat actors in breaches.”
