Video: Healthcare's Information Security Disconnect

Kerry Shackelford of Coalfire explores security issues in the collection and storage of healthcare data and the ongoing search for uniform standards other industries already have in place.


From HIPAA to the HITECH Act, requirements are in place to protect individual sets of data collected and stored at your practice. But unlike other industries, uniform and widespread standards on the security of patient and financial data is non-existent.
