Global Security Mag - Northgate Managed Services and Imprivata Partnership Delivers SSO to NHS Scotland
Mac McMillan, CEO of Austin, Texas-based IT security firm CynergisTek and chair of the HIMSS Privacy & Security Policy Task Force, has some strong opinions about privacy protections in healthcare nowadays. The short version? Things could be a lot better.. Look at the number of breaches. Insider snooping is still rampant in healthcare. And that’s a cultural issue. It’s a cultural issue that says, ‘It’s OK for me to be looking at things that I’m not supposed to be looking at.’ Which goes right to the core of how the industry views security and confidentiality. Providers do not see security as an imperative yet.
