Cyber security attacks have dramatically increased (71% increase alone in 2020) because private health information (PHI) is the most sought after information on the dark web, due to the comprehensive nature and extended shelf life of the personal data.
Medical and health providers are forced to use a number of standalone, proprietary communication tools (eg USB’s, email, fax, popular file sharing, messaging and video conferencing tools) that may compromise the integrity and security of private and sensitive information being shared internally and externally.
Many of these well-known proprietary tools, although HIPAA compliant do not always integrate which substantially increases the likelihood of sensitive patient data being breached, leaked or held to ransom.
Hackers and Malicous Actors
Medical data and records are amongst the most valued data on the dark web, making healthcare a significant target for hackers and malicious actors.
Human error accounts for between 40-90% of data breaches. Legacy sharing systems like email and fax are particularly susceptible to human error.
Many organisations focus on perimeter protections like firewalls and anti-virus but data breaches will likely eventually occur regardless. If your data isn't encrypted within these perimeter protections, the impact of the data breach compounds significantly.
Protect Your Data
End-to-end encryption means your data is NEVER decrypted on its journey to the end-user, unlike all other forms of encryption which will occasionally decrypt your data as it passes through servers and platforms. This means that even in the case of a breach your information will remain completely unreadable and unusable to hackers.
DekkoSecure also satisfies for data sovereignty as all data can be held in Australia, or the jurisdiction of choice.
Enable Secure Sharing and Collaboration
DekkoSecure combines five ultra-secure communication tools on a single end-to-end encrypted web and cloud-based platform.
This means that in a health care environment, all private communication and information that pertains to a patient or a particular case can be easily stored, shared, collaborated on and maintained in an ultra-secure environment that also guarantees the integrity of the data.
Reduce IT Infrastructure
Because DekkoSecure is a cloud-based solution it is easy to use and manage, and it also dramatically reduces the need for IT administration.
Secure External Collaboration
DekkoVault enables secure external collaboration with doctors, hospitals and clinics whilst guaranteeing the security of patient medical data.
Reduce Administrative Workload
The removal of manual and cumbersome data sharing methods like USB, fax and email streamlines communication and aids effective collaboration.
Patient Data Confidentiality
The use of end-to-end encryption means patient and clinic data is protected and will remain unreadable and unusable to hackers, even in the event of a breach.
Healthcare Industry Threat Landscape
89% of healthcare organisations experienced a data breach in the past two years. (IDX)
Healthcare is among the top two target industries for hackers, accounting for 15% of attacks. (Verizon)
Data breaches in healthcare are more costly then any other industry, with an estimated cost of $408 per record. (HIPAA Journal)
The healthcare industry was the victim of 88% of all ransomware attacks in the US in 2016. (Beckers)
