Industry not prepared to meet the security challenges

Deloitte, July 28, 2009

The HITECH Act offers a massive opportunity for providers to maximize the value of data and the promise of new automation. But the industry may not be equipped to capitalize on new automation, according to a Deloitte survey, "The Time is Now: 2009 Global Life Sciences & Health Care Security Study." Data leakage is a huge threat and as healthcare regulations continue to increase, security budgets may not be able to keep pace, the report says.
