RSA Conference 2009: Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST) to Host Panel Session on Securing the Future of the Healthcare Industry

The Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST) today announced that its CEO and participants will present a panel “Industry Needs to Step Up to Secure Electronic Health Information Exchange” at RSA Conference 2009, April 20-24, in San Francisco. It is one of the first panels at an RSA Conference to address the security needs of the healthcare sector. With the nation on the verge of broad scale adoption of health information technology, combined with the dramatic rise in breaches, theft of patient health data and the increase in regulatory requirements such as those mandated by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009 - healthcare organizations and their business partners are now under intense pressure and scrutiny regarding security and privacy. This session features Chief Information Security Officers who are driving change through HITRUST, a collaboration of the nation’s leading healthcare organizations, and will highlight:

  • Challenges and realities of protecting electronic health information, including electronic health records (EHRs) and health data exchanges
  • Industry’s role in addressing government-driven regulations such as HIPAA and impact of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA)
  • Rationale and value of a single, prescriptive, certifiable information security control framework that incorporates the spectrum of regulations, policies and business requirements
  • Steps in moving the largest US industry towards greater and more efficient information protection

About HITRUST

The Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST) was born out of the belief that information security should be a core pillar of, rather than an obstacle to, the broad adoption and utilization of health information technologies and exchanges. This, in turn, is critical to realizing the related promise of quality improvement and cost containment in America’s healthcare system. HITRUST is collaborating with healthcare, business, technology, and information security leaders to establish a certifiable framework that can be used by any and all organizations that create, access, store or exchange personal health and financial information. Beyond the establishment of the first common security framework, HITRUST is also driving adoption and widespread confidence in the framework and sound risk management practices through awareness, education, advocacy and other outreach activities.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
