Podcast: Talking Data Security and Privacy in Healthcare

I recently spoke to the Apps Alliance, a non-profit global membership organization that supports developers as creators, innovators, and entrepreneurs, on the latest trends in healthcare security.

It was a fascinating 40 minutes and a great opportunity to take a look at security issues not just from the healthcare professional or patient perspective, but also from a developers’ point of view. In this podcast, we take a look at what's important to all three groups when it comes to privacy, security and risk around healthcare data.

We discussed:

  • Best practices for developers looking to secure healthcare data
  • Security challenges that stem from the flow of data from mobile healthcare devices
  • The relationship between usability and security

I recently wrote a blog looking at the perceived trade-off between usability and security in healthcare IT and how you can mitigate risks in your own organisation. We have solutions to help you overcome these challenges, many of which are outlined in our Healthcare Friendly Security whitepaper.

We'd love to get your feedback on the issues discussed in the podcast so please leave a comment below - we're happy to answer questions you may have too.

Thanks for listening.
