Modern AI-focussed Approach to Ensure Health Data Privacy

Healthcare Tech Outlook | Tuesday, June 04, 2019

AI in HealthcareFREMONT, CA: It is a no-brainer that technology can be instrumental in improving patient experience, enhancing organizational efficiencies and, most importantly, saving a life. However, ensuring that the information is stored, communicated, and accessed in a way that is safe and complies with the legislation of privacy is a continuing task for healthcare organizations. At the same moment, cyber threats increase in frequency and sophistication, partly because stolen medical information on the black market is even more important than credit card numbers.

Tools harnessing artificial intelligence (AI) and automation would be a wise investment for leaders in information security to continue to develop their protection policies. Endpoint protection solutions of the next generation allow automation and orchestration by efficiently incorporating with other safety solutions. AI can recognize threats in real time in such instruments. However, healthcare IT leaders need to bear in mind that many hackers are already leveraging AI and automation in their efforts to attack. AI has a transformative impact on cybersecurity in the healthcare industry.

The healthcare sector can profit from automation just as much as criminals do. As security automation grows, it allows healthcare safety experts to keep pace with the increasing attack of malware attacks targeting their industry specifically. Automation can assist traffic segmentation safety leaders and can also enhance key safety features such as device patching and configuration of network devices.

Driving towards purpose-based safety will allow organizations to leverage the strength of automation and inclusion as critical instruments to fight the continually changing horizon assaults on ransomware and malware. Regarding the safety advantages offered by AI and automation, a well-rounded privacy approach is still essential for health care suppliers. Associations should maintain a team of dedicated qualified security staff to supervise the execution of AI tools and make critical and real-time decisions where automation cannot fix a cybersecurity problem.

A contemporary AI version of cybersecurity involves distinct entities to guarantee the privacy of health information, no matter how smart AI systems become. AI has opened opportunities for achieving confidentiality of health data against attack, to deter and defend against attacks.
