Mobile Devices Pose New Security Risks for Patients; Five Experts Share Insights on mHealth
Date:7/20/2011

lace. Not only to meet HIPAA compliance requirements, but also to protect your patients and your hospitals and clinics. A key component is providing training and awareness to those staff using such devices. After all, doctors and nurses cannot protect information on mobile devices if they are not taught effective ways to do so. If you don't provide security knowledge to those using mobile devices, privacy breaches will occur."

Rick Kam, president and co-founder, ID Experts, comprehensive data breach solutions, www.idexpertscorp.com: "Many Wi-Fi networks in hospitals and doctor's offices are not secure and coupled with the increased mobile device usage, patient data is at risk. Here are eight things you can do to protect sensitive patient data:

  1. Whenever possible, don't store sensitive data on wireless devices. If required, ensure the data is encrypted.
  2. Enable password protection on wireless devices, and configure the lock screen to come on after a short period of inactivity.
  3. Turn on the Remote Wipe feature of wireless devices.
  4. Enable Wi-Fi network security. Do not use WEP, and only use WPA-1 with strong passphrases. Use WPA-2 if possible.
  5. Change the default SSID and administrative passwords.
  6. Don't transmit your wireless router's SSID.
  7. Only allow your devices to connect by specifying their hardware MAC address.
  8. Implement a Wireless Intrusion Prevention System."

Robert Siciliano, CEO, IDTheftSecurity.com, personal security and identity theft expert, www.IDTheftSecurity.com: "Mobile isn't just a convenient new gadget or toy, it's a huge target for criminal hackers and needs to be treated accordingly."
