Princeton, NJ, April 13, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- The top breach-prevention steps that healthcare organizations are taking this year include ramping up security training and encrypting mobile devices, the second annual Healthcare Information Security Today Survey shows.
The survey, from Information Security Media Group (ISMG), publisher of HealthcareInfoSecurity, offers an in-depth assessment of efforts to protect patient information. RSA, the Security Division of EMC, is the survey sponsor.
"While the survey shows many organizations still have a long way to go when it comes to adopting security technologies, it also shows 2013 is a year when many plan to take significant action," says Howard Anderson, ISMG news editor.
Improving regulatory compliance ranks as the No. 1 information security priority for the year ahead, according to the survey.
Healthcare Information Security Today is an annual study targeting chief information security officers, CIOs and other senior leaders at hospitals, integrated delivery systems, clinics, health plans and other healthcare organizations.
