If healthcare organizations allow the implementation of cloud-based applications such as enterprise file sync and share services, IT departments should ensure that a solution is in place that will encrypt files at the endpoint before being pushed to the cloud.
The time has come for healthcare organizations and their business associates to consider stronger preventative security measures. Decision-makers must invest in internal strategies that can be widely implemented and enforced, such as: security education training for internal staff, restricting certain user access, revising contracts with business associates and subcontractors to properly ensure that all practices meet federal guidelines and, of course, encrypt everything.
