Security continues to be a priority in healthcare, however even the most mature security program often overlooks printed documents and the devices printing PHI. With employees being one of the leading causes of data breaches and the ease for outside attackers to gain access to a device and data on a hospital’s network, a comprehensive security strategy of the print environment is crucial now more than ever before.

The first step to creating an integrated strategy to safeguard the numerous access points in a hospital’s print infrastructure is to perform a print security assessment of devices. Our security experts conduct a comprehensive evaluation of device security including penetration assessment, device configuration and operational controls in workflows.

In accordance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accessibility Act (HIPAA), devices such as printers, copiers and faxes are workstations and are required to be secured and maintained to the set standards of HIPAA. Due to the numerous access points where PHI can reside, print devices are extremely vulnerable and highly overlooked.
