Princeton, NJ, January 02, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Information Security Media Group (ISMG), publisher of HealthcareInfoSecurity, announces its third annual Healthcare Information Security Today survey, which measures progress toward ensuring the privacy and security of healthcare information, as well as compliance with the HIPAA Omnibus Rule.
This web-based research study was created by ISMG with the counsel of top healthcare and security experts. The survey, sponsored by (ISC)², explores how information security leaders are taking steps to respond to today's key challenges.
The survey will:
-Examine the evolving state of information security at U.S. healthcare organizations, including compliance with HIPAA Omnibus;
-Showcase the steps security leaders are taking to prevent breaches, protect electronic health records and address the risks posed by mobile devices;
-Project the emerging technologies and strategies where healthcare organizations are investing their resources;
-Review the state of information security at hospitals, clinics, health plan providers and integrated delivery systems to determine strengths and weaknesses.
The annual Healthcare Information Security Today survey gives healthcare information security professionals and other senior executives insights that they can track and measure over time. Last year's survey results showed, for example:
-Healthcare organizations were more confident in their ability to thwart external threats than they were about mitigating internal threats;
-Keeping up with risk assessments was a challenge; and
-Top priorities for 2013 included improving regulatory compliance, boosting security education and preventing and detecting breaches.
