The Role of IT Security In Public Safety And Health Care: Part 4 - Potential Fixes

How do government agencies and health care providers tackle the problem of cybersecurity? According to Computer Weekly, this is a task that requires combined effort from public and private organizations. For example, increased transparency on the part of both industry and government departments could allow quicker identification of potential threats along with actionable insight on how to mitigate these issues. This would require some leeway on the part of governments to overlook potential private missteps in compliance or data handling for the greater good of long-term security.

The Role of IT Security In Public Safety And Health Care: Part 3 – Current Challenges

Fortunately, governments and health companies recognize the need for IT security in defending their data. The problem? Many agencies are falling behind private industry and exposing themselves to undue risk. According to Recode, reporting on a recent study, government Web applications fail to comply with service standards 76 percent of the time, and government agencies rank “dead last” in fixing security problems with any software they build or buy.

The Role of IT Security In Public Safety And Health Care: Part 2 – Real Risks

Government agencies and health providers are often seen as inherently secure: After all, they didn’t engender public trust overnight, but were compelled to earn it over time by demonstrating the ability to protect information and detect potential compromise. As a result, best practices — and in some cases a substantial amount of red tape — have been honed after years of effort and designed to safeguard this public trust.

The Role of IT Security In Public Safety And Health Care: Part 1

It’s easy to think of IT security as the province of private industry. With intellectual property, business strategy documents and personally identifiable information (PII) now stored internally and on the cloud, it’s no surprise that the RT network reported that the worldwide infosec market is estimated to reach $170 billion in the year 2020. Beyond corporations, SMBs and startups however, are government agencies and health care firms, tasked with protecting public safety and some of the most personal and potentially compromising data available.
