Privacy Breach Detection

Protect and quickly react to data and privacy threats

Next Steps:


Today, patient information resides on laptops, mobile devices, and databases. Consumer devices enable clinicians and physicians to be readily connected but can also facilitate communication and data transfers through the Internet that can be risky for healthcare providers, HIPAA compliance, and security. As a result, the risk of data breaches has increased significantly, along with the risk of subsequent regulatory fines, litigation, and damage to your reputation. Yet, utilizing and analyzing this data is critical and assists in providing stronger healthcare services.

McAfee’s Security Connected framework enables faster alerting, analysis, and options for healthcare IT to provide robust systems and risk detection:

  • Broad coverage provided by security information and event management (SIEM) easily integrates with traditional IT logs and provides greater context with clinical application logs
  • Healthcare-specific tools for monitoring activity and access to the data directly within databases, alerting on activities of privileged users and applications
  • Data loss discovery to find the sources of your data and alert on proprietary data leaks
  • Email and web gateways ensure communication and use of services is within the healthcare's guidelines to proactively manage risky behavior

Key Benefits

  • Visibility across the heterogeneous environment
    The expansion of digitized healthcare and managing existing infrastructure, and having visibility and consolidation of logging provides timely notification of security risk issues and events.
  • Data monitoring without disrupting healthcare operations
    Assess where your organization has sensitive data with data discovery as part of ongoing HIPAA risk assessment. Manage potential risky communication and transfers with data loss protection, enabling notification and/or blocking of egregious offenders to your healthcare information security policy.
  • Proactively manage against potential data misuse and transfer
    Monitor and set security policies for email and web activities, exposing the most common areas of concern for sensitive data misuse or compromise of organizational security policy.
