The UAE’s Vision 2021 aims to make the UAE one of the best countries in the world. In order to achieve this ambition, the UAE launched the National Agenda comprising a range of key performance indicators (KPIs), of which one of the key elements of that agenda is the National Cybersecurity Strategy. This strategy aims to create a safe and strong cyber infrastructure in the UAE that enables citizens to fulfil their aspirations and empowers businesses to thrive
An important aspiration as part of this strategy is to protect critical information infrastructure assets of the UAE. Healthcare is categorised as one of the nine critical sectors. The strategy will be achieved through a robust Critical Information Infrastructures Protection (CIIP) program:
- Identify critical sectors, assets, and associated risks
- Establish world-class risk management standards
- Implement robust processes for reporting, compliance, and response
Healthcare organisations, as providers of critical national services, must ensure that they are, and continue to be, compliant with any and all relevant standards. More specifically, healthcare organisations should be compliant with the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) aeCERT Standard Information Security Policy.
Imprivata solutions can be a vital element of a healthcare organisation’s strategy to achieve cybersecurity compliance.
