  • To defend endpoint security in healthcare, technology teams with training

    At many hospitals and physician practices, endpoint devices -- such as desktop computers, laptops and smartphones -- can become areas for cybercriminals to exploit. However, a combination of high-tech defense and old-fashioned common sense offer potent protection against endpoint breaches.

    This handbook starts off with an article that looks at the security aspects of patient data on mobile devices and how those devices can work with storage technology. It may be best, when possible, to steer clear of storing personal health information on smartphones and tablets. Instead, look to back-end storage options.

    Next, readers can learn about HIPAA breaches and endpoint security in a Q&A with a hospital interim CIO.

    The final article pinpoints the security advantages offered by a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), which can help medical facilities sidestep data breaches while physicians use mobile devices.
