Healthcare Information Security: Strategic Asset or Necessary Evil?
October 4, 2006, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Deb Pappas, Vice President, Courion Corporation, will review findings from “Information Security Executives on the Front Lines”, an independent market research study published by Executive Alliance and Courion. Survey results reveal healthcare information security executives are split on whether they believe information security is perceived as a strategic asset or a necessary evil, yet they report the increased importance of information security based on their increased access to and frequency of discussions with senior management. The survey examines trends related to planning, providing and improving information security protection, and looks at the similarities and differences between healthcare and other industries. A discussion on closing the gap follows, as well as case studies of benefits to healthcare organizations adopting identity management solutions to solve their access control and audit compliance requirements.
