Cybersecurity refers to the protection practice for the hardware, software, and data from being destroyed, altered or leaked by accidental or malicious reasons to ensure the system runs continuously and the network service is not interrupted. An effective cybersecurity methodology has multiple levels of protection spread across the computers, networks, programs, and data that one intends to remain secure. For an effective defense from cyber-attacks, the people, processes, and technology in any organization should complement one another.The cybersecurity can be divided into physical security and logical security. Physical safety refers to the physical protection of system equipment and related facilities from damage and loss. Logical security includes integrity, confidentiality, and availability of information.
Haier is building a mobile application platform where all mobile applications running on this platform must be designed with unified security, architecture, management, and platform support capabilities. This new platform also must incorporate Haier's IT applications with smart devices.
Increasingly sophisticated malware attacks can leave healthcare providers in a vulnerable position as they confront the critical need to improve security while also keeping IT costs under control. Concord Hospital has worked hard to cultivate a reputation for clinical and patient service excellence.As an example of its progressive approach to automating health service delivery, Hospitals & Health Networks magazine has named Concord one of the United States’ “Most Wired Hospitals” for several consecutive years. In order to maintain this level of operational excellence, Concord Hospital needed a solution to save time and resources while also improving results for software licensing, patch management, asset inventory and security configuration.
SCL Health’s IT department faced unique challenges when planning their security. In addition to securing thousands of endpoints spread across three states, they also have to be compliant with HIPAA regulations. HIPAA, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, sets rules for keeping patient information secure. If a healthcare organisation fails to secure sensitive patient information, they can face large fines and legal action. A major security goal was to make sure there were no malicious threats operating in their network. A singular locally installed anti-virus programme cannot protect against all threats. Advanced threats are smart enough to lie dormant for long periods of time and can bypass a specific antivirus engine’s vulnerabilities. SCL needed a solution that would provide stronger assurance of detecting all types of threats and that would help them show their efforts to maintain compliance with HIPAA.
