Survey: Insider Threats #1 Concern

Still Time to Participate in Security Survey
Survey: Insider Threats #1 Concern
Early results from the Healthcare Information Security Today survey show that insider threats, such as records snooping and ID theft, are perceived to be the most significant security threats to healthcare organizations.

So it's not surprising that, so far, the most frequently mentioned information security investment priority for the fiscal year ahead is audit logs/log management, which can be used to detect insider threats.

There's still time to participate in HealthcareInfoSecurity's inaugural survey, designed to gauge top trends, threats and priorities. The survey targets chief information officers, chief information security officers and other senior executives at hospitals, clinics, integrated delivery systems and health insurers.

This web-based research study, created with the counsel of top healthcare and information security experts, explores how information security leaders are responding to today's key challenges.

"By participating in this important research project, you'll help us provide you with a detailed analysis of the status of healthcare information security, which you can then use to compare your organization's efforts with others and gain insights that you can apply to your security program," says Howard Anderson, HealthcareInfoSecurity's, executive editor.

In the weeks ahead, HealthcareInfoSecurity will present the final survey results in a variety of ways, including an executive summary, annotated report, interviews and a webinar.
