Penn Medicine’s approach to managing BYOD and security

Trying to lock down senior leadership buy-in for IT security and a more HIPAA-compliant technology infrastructure might actually become a little easier, if they become motivated by the more stringent HIPAA omnibus mandates going into effect in September. Tighter security is a must, for the bring-your-own-device, also known as BYOD or consumerization, era is upon us. Without policies to enforce and security software to monitor devices and the network, and encrypt data, the cost of inaction could very well be an expensive data breach.

The new HIPAA regulation not only brings stronger, more specific privacy and security requirements to healthcare providers and their business-associate partners, but it also trips off a new system of audits. Health IT experts are exploring how to manage BYOD policies and boost security to accommodate the new mandates.
