March 24, 2022 | 0 Comments

The TLC Group is offering a suite of training solutions and consultancy services designed to “enhance an organization’s ability to pro-actively and efficiently implement and manage a data protection program.”

A spokesperson said, “The phrase ‘first, do no harm’ is widely recognized as a guiding principle for doctors and those working in the healthcare industry to provide the best possible patient care.

“But how about the harm that can occur to patients if their medical records end up on the ‘dark web’ due to a data breach?

“Or when hospitals can’t access patient records because of a ransomware attack?

“And let’s not forget the widespread use of technology-based medical devices and information systems which can be compromised by cyber criminals to manipulate the data they collect and transmit.

“These and other data protection & security risks within the medical industry can cause life-threatening harm or potentially even death.

“However, there are also data privacy concerns to consider. Especially as medical data is highly sensitive or ‘special category’, and most people do not want their information to be shared with an individual or entity unless there is a lawful basis for doing so.

“Many invasions of privacy or medical identity fraud occur because patient information is accidentally posted, faxed, or emailed to the wrong person. This often leads to reputational damage and lack of trust for the organization because let’s be real, who wants to attend a medical facility that doesn’t protect their data!

“According to many industry experts, the healthcare industry is unique in that the highest cause of data breaches and cyber incidents is not due to external forces, but from insiders, those who work within the organizations.

“This mean organizations that collect, use or store patient information and medical data not only need to have implemented a robust data privacy & security program with the right policies, procedures, and tools to protect data, they also need to ensure their staff members are trained in data protection best practices and managing risks.

“To support medical organizations with protecting their data, The TLC Group are pleased to announce they are rolling out a suite of training solutions and consultancy services designed to enhance an organization’s ability to pro-actively and efficiently implement and manage a data protection program.

“Whether it’s raising the data protection awareness levels of the entire team, assessing data privacy & security risks within the physical environment, conducting vulnerability testing of web-based/online patient portals or training specific individuals within the organization to serve as a Medical Data Privacy & Security Champion, Lead, Officer or Tech Specialist, The TLC Group has a solution to suit most budgets.
