OnPage: Wearables, BYOD & HIPAA

Wearables BYOD

Wearables take Security Concerns to a ‘different level’ Article Courtesy of:  Fierce Mobile Healthcare Consumer fitness devices and company-sponsored wellness programs that use them pose a “whole different level of security and privacy concern,” Stephen Cobb, senior security researcher at ESET, tells HealthcareInfoSecurity.com. “A lot of the data is fairly benign, but the architecture within which these devices operate–there are apps that talk to them, there is data that is transmitted and stored and some sort of portal though which you go and access your  information–it introduces multiple points where potentially sensitive, private information could be intercepted and stolen,” he says in the interview.

Amidst the 2013 HIMSS conference in New Orleans this year, the rise of mobility in healthcare is getting a lot of attention. At last year’s conference it seemed to be in a dozen events or so but this year mHealth seems to be just about everywhere. Appearing in and out of exhibit halls, sessions, panel discussions and keynotes, no one can now ignore how much mobile healthcare has risen in the past year.
