As health IT evolves, so do security threats. Modern health IT is not like the health IT of old, and needs to be addressed differently, and for this reason, Health IT Security gave a list of things you can do to make your health care IT infrastructure more secure.
First, you can conduct user analysis to understand the end-user environment. Second, use virtual desktop infrastructure, because with this, administrators are able to centralize applications, settings and workload, Heath IT Security Reported.
You can also use next-generation security, which ranges from virtualization and virtual desktop infrastructure aware antivirus solutions to modern scanning and policy engines. Finally, you shouldn’t block “bring your own device,” but should rather try to control it. It’s unavoidable, so it’s best to just work with the flow, and not against it.
