Personal information is important to keep secure in any industry but it’s especially significant in health care. When considering network requirements in a healthcare setting it’s important to have the right network in place to remain compliant and maintain complete patient security. In addition to the security of your patients, you have to consider the security of your network itself. Ensuring that you have complete security from your edge router to inside your facility, and multi layered security from your router to your workstations, protecting your organization from dangerous spam which can be especially harmful if you don’t have a proper back-up and data retention plan in place. Lastly, in addition to network security, it’s also vital to make sure your network is capable of handling the large amount of traffic required in a day to day practice.
