day to day lives. The benefits of expediency and the convenience afforded to those who utilize information systems their business dynamics is undeniable. This paper will discuss the various threats and vulnerabilities related to the United States healthcare system as well as government regulations and policies as well as the issues of overall personal data security as a whole. Threat assessment in regards to a cyber- attack and the level of liability in the aftermath of a cyber-attack will also be
Cybercrime bigger than Terrorism. “There are two kinds of people in America today: those who have experienced a foreign cyber attack and know it, and those who have experienced a foreign cyber attack and don 't know it.” (Frank Wolf). The world has become more connected today than ever before. The world’s technology is growing larger and the internet’s traffic is boosting. Major internet-related industries are doubling profits because of the online traffic. With all the wonderful and positive things
Besides, there are other barriers to the efficient development of telemedicine such as concerns about privacy and security. With the increase in cybercrime, information shared through the digital technologies is prone to hacking by malicious people. Besides, the issue of patient's confidential information becomes a challenge because different healthcare providers have access to the systems. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act was a statute signed in 1996 by President Clinton.
Impacts to cybercrime today is forcing government and security agencies to place focus on cybersecurity within government, private, and public sectors. In 2015, the administration intends to pass legislation to strengthen cybersecurity across the U.S. government and private industry through information sharing methods. Contradictory controversy exists whether the government may dictate how the private industry should carry out their cybersecurity, if so, is it effective? Over the last several
replacing credit information, it is extremely valuable. This source of information makes the healthcare industry a prime target for cybercriminals. According to the Intel Security report, hackers are no longer just stealing medical data and selling it, they are extorting their victims (Landi, H., 2016). In one such case, a hacker stole more than 650,000 medical records from three separate healthcare institution databases. Then preceded to publicly advertised the records for sale in the dark web

Infrastructure Although printer security is often overlooked, there are several steps healthcare IT managers can take to properly secure their printer ecosystem. By Mario Doss HP For those who may not see the urgency in printer and software upgrades let me point out how the last two years have seen several high profile, costly health data security breaches from some major healthcare organizations including Anthem Healthcare, Premera Blue Cross BlueShield, Excellus BlueCross BlueShield and UCLA Health
Summary of data breaches in hospital industry Data breaches have become common nowadays especially in the healthcare industry. For example, a number of hacking events have been reported in the past years (Croll, 2007). Such events in the healthcare industry, have threatened the safety of private medical records. Since the healthcare environment posses the most valuable information of patients, they are the establishments who are most likely to suffer from hackers. Most importantly, patients worry

Risk Management Systems are designed to do more than just identify the risk. The system must also be able to quantify the risk and predict the impact of the risk on the project. The outcome is therefore a risk that is either acceptable or unacceptable. The acceptance or non-acceptance of a risk is usually dependent on the project manager’s tolerance level for risk. If risk management is set up as a continuous, disciplined process of problem identification and resolution, then the system will easily
