NJVC Offers White Papers as Healthcare Sector’s Cyber Playbook

NJVC- ExecutiveMosaicNJVC has published a three-part series of white papers that aim to help healthcare organizations further develop cybersecurity strategies and systems to protect sensitive data and information.

Terri Schoenrock, healthcare solutions director, authored one part of the series and the other two were written by cybersecurity principal Robert J. Michalsky, NJVC said Thursday.

The company intends for the white paper series to serve as a playbook for healthcare IT organizations to assess risk and implement defense systems for protecting patient data.

“Healthcare IT leaders must strike a balance between being agile and responsive to stakeholders and managing the risk of compromised security with consistently shrinking budgets,” Schoenrock said.

“The high-wire act of leading in changing times is made more strenuous by the fast pace of change in the health IT systems that house patient data, and the growth in worldwide cyber attacks,” Schoenrock added.

Michalsky said NJVC aims to apply its more than 10 years of experience in IT infrastructure protection to help healthcare institutions face cybersecurity challenges, particularly those that relate to concealment of patient data.

“Healthcare organizations must view cyber security as a process, rather than a product, to protect valuable patient health data and prevent an expensive and embarrassing breach,” Michalsky said.
