Identiv helps healthcare organizations remain trusted by patients and perform the duty of care without worrying about data breaches.
Healthcare organizations are an ongoing criminal target due to the rich data they keep. Patients’ personal information, medical history, as well as insurance information is easily stolen from poorly protected health institutions and used for various criminal purposes. As the 9/11 Dark Overlord hack and data exposure illustrate, life insurance and legal industries are also not safe when it comes to healthrelated hacks.
With the extensive, rapid shift of medical services to the digital world and vast sets of health data gathered amid the pandemic, criminals will likely seize this
opportunity to infiltrate networks and hack sensitive patient information. Medical institutions must adopt better authentication practices in their operations to ensure that only authorized entities have access to patients’ healthcare data.
