Data protection is critical in healthcare. Seeking to secure the sensitive data they hold and work with, healthcare organizations increasingly use encryption to protect data in transit.
While effective as far as it goes, this approach can lead to a false sense of security—as organizations fail to realize that encryption can also be used to hide attacks.
Recognizing this problem, some organizations turn to decryption as a way to effectively inspect all the traffic leaving and entering their environment. In practice, though, decryption is typically implemented in a highly inefficient, ad hoc manner that quickly raises issues with cost, scalability, and performance.
In this ebook, you’ll learn the security threats facing healthcare organizations, the issues with traditional approaches to encryption and decryption, and a better way to protect data privacy without impairing security.
