Phoenix Synergy Discusses securing computer networks at the AZPMA conference in Las Vegas
Date:12/28/2012

Phoenix, AZ, (PRWEB) December 28, 2012

A group of Podiatrist recently held their annual AZPMA conference in Las Vegas, Nevada highlighting issues in maintaining complacency in regards to HIPPA regulations. James Isdahl of Phoenix Synergy discussed how those in the medical field could secure both their office network environment and their software. He goes on to explain that although doctors believe they are in compliance because the security of the software they run, the network around them may be their biggest risk.

In an effort to help maximize their ePHI (electronic protected health information) security, AZPMA invited Phoenix Synergy, a leader in the network security industry, to discuss the importance of increasing network security by safeguarding against external and internal threats from hackers, poor firewall management and non-encrypted laptops. ePHI refers to all methods in which stored protected information is being transmitted, or received electronically and must be secured in accordance with the HIPAA Security Rule.

Adam Yax, CTO of Phoenix Synergy stated, “HIPPA Compliance is the driving force behind the medical industries’ procedures that doctors’ offices across the US use to secure their networks. Often Doctors use software that is compliant, but their office network is not.”

Providing the conference with a list of the most overlooked and common mistakes many people make by assuming that all systems are secure, Phoenix Synergy discussed how to assess the danger areas in a network or security system and what can be done to advert some common mistakes made by doctors. Some of these mistakes include unsecure or outdated security in wireless services, unlocked and insecure IT rooms, not enforcing password change policies and allowing privileged information to be viewed as it is entered into the software.

“Small businesses make the mistake in assuming that because they have some kind of firewall installed on their system, they are safe from hackers. This is not the case, and a lot of the security risk can occur from disgruntled employees. Installing a password change policy is just one step to increase those security systems,” stated Mr. Isdahl.

In order to prevent security breaches and to avoid being in non-compliance with HIPPA regulations, Phoenix Synergy strongly urges those in the medical field to perform periodic security assessments. A single breach can cost more financially than replacing, upgrading or consistently assessing a network for potential risks.
