Secure Engineering & Product Vulnerability Management
Physical and digital information security should balance protection with usability.
A medical network system requires a high degree of security and needs confidentiality and protection of personal privacy. Data security measures in all aspects is a must.
Security policies and formal security assessment processes have to be implemented. Risk assessment and risk management programs should address identified vulnerabilities.Healthcare data security is of prime importance due to increase in cyber attacks.
Our security engineers learn, breathe and understand the imperative need for security of data, systems and information along the healthcare information pathway. At Alopa, there are exciting times ahead. The digitization and IT transformation of the healthcare industry is at stage 1.0. What this means is that we, as software gurus can extend our expertise and influence the direction of software processes and development in health care. Our security engineering team are right now involved in putting their expertise in data security protocols to ensure security of patient information and data integrity.
Here are some of the basic standards in data privacy, accountability, and certifications that the Alopa team excels in. We are committed to follow these standards.
Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA) was established to improve storage of healthcare systems and patient data. Digitization of data has proved a massive threat to health records and personal information of patients. HIPPA sets standard for sensitive patient data protection.
Companies dealing with Protected Health Information (PHI) should ensure HIPPA compliance. Appropriate administrative, physical and technical safeguards have to be implemented to ensure confidentiality, integrity of electronic protected health information.
In this digital age, an SSL certificate is critical for healthcare services. Acquiring an SSL certificate would ensure website security and would provide adherence to federal laws of keeping patient information confidential. SSL certificates carry out various verification procedures to ensure website safety. Encryption of sensitive information and authentication can be implemented.
GDPR is a standard for data privacy. It outlines policies for collecting, processing and securing personal data. Be it patient information, health insurance information, biometric information or financial records all these are vital information of an organization which are very sensitive. Compliance with GDPR requirements is very critical.
