Protect Patient Data the Smart Way with Automated IT Security Management 



Due to advancement in digitization, hospital IT managers are facing growing challenges. On the one hand, they are expected to build a technical foundation that supports digital care. On the other hand, they must protect sensitive patient data in an increasingly complex regulatory landscape, such as the NIS Directive.

USE CASES

Safeguard Systems Against Data Theft and Malware

Do you know what patient data leaves your hospital – via which channels or on what devices? Can you ensure that only authorized personnel has access to use, copy, and file confidential patient data? And can you proactively prevent sensitive patient data from leaving the hospital or being abused by third parties?​ 


Securing highly sensitive data and conforming to HIPAA regulations is imperative. Matrix42 HEALTHCARE DATA is a tool that helps you ensure the comprehensive protection of your patient data. With Matrix42 automating various IT security and service processes, your IT team has more time to focus on the essentials: supporting the needs of your staff and patients.

THREAT ASSESSMENT AT THE PUSH OF A BUTTON

Trace Data Flows Transparently and Detect Vulnerabilities Early On 

Gain the ability to maintain an overview of all data transfers, data access, and data carriers used at the push of a button. Matrix42 HEALTHCARE DATA quickly identifies vulnerabilities and documents forensic information to ensure GDPR compliance.

RISK OF INSIDER ATTACKS AND DATA THEFT

Detect Anomalies and Protect Data Based on Behavioral Heuristics

Matrix42 HEALTHCARE DATA automatically analyzes all data transfers and their contents. Heuristics can spot suspicious actions or anomalies, and triggers targeted protective measures such as blocking access or downloading. This automated approach facilitates the work of your administrators and significantly speeds up response time.

GDPR AND LOGGING

Automated Logging of Data Breaches

In the event of a data breach, Matrix42 HEALTHCARE DATA automatically logs forensic information to ensure compliance. This allows healthcare facilities to meet GDPR documentation requirements while protecting the privacy rights of patients and employees. Logged data is then protected in accordance with works council regulations.

PATIENT DATA PROTECTION IN THE HIS

Extensive Encryption of Your Patient Data in the Hospital Information System

The Hospital Information System (HIS) is the central repository of all patient data but may not be secure if data can be easily accessed and exported at any time. Confidentiality of Electronic Health Records (EHRs) is critical.  Matrix42 HEALTHCARE DATA prevents data misuse by automatically encrypting all patient data in the background.  As a result, your data is protected from unauthorized third parties at all times.

ADDITIONAL PROTECTION AND MONITORING OF YOUR PATIENT DATA

Emergency File in the Event of HIS Downtime

Your assets are critical to the success of patient care delivery. In the event of hospital information system failure, patient data must remain available locally on workstations. However, under normal circumstances this data should be encrypted and generally inaccessible except via local emergency accounts. With Matrix42 HEALTHCARE DATA, you can support these contingency situations while still securing day-to-day access in just a few clicks to ensure optimal compliance.

SECURITY RISK: RETENTION PERIODS AND DELETED DATA

Secure Data Deletion in Accordance with GDPR 

Securely deleting personal data from primary systems is part of the data security requirements and data subject rights under the General Data Protection Regulation. With Matrix42 Secure Erase feature, your IT team will be able to quickly comply to erase file folders, files, and empty sectors of the hard drives in a manner that prevents recovery.

MANAGE TERMINALS, INTERFACES, AND DICOM DATA

Systematically Manage and Release Access Rights and Data Flows

Unauthorized access to interfaces and devices within the IT infrastructure continues to be a high security risk. This can be mitigated by strong access control functions that empower IT to control access to any device and interface. Data transmission channels and data imported via open standards such as DICOM are also secured. Moreover, password-protected interface controls prevent unauthorized configuration.

SECURE DATA EXCHANGE WITH THE CANCER REGISTRY

Encrypt External Data Carriers with Ease

Hospitals that treat cancer patients must report information to the cancer registry once a month. Due to the high data protection standards imposed on this patient information, many clinics still opt for paper-based processing, which consequently results in high labor costs. A faster, and more cost-effective method is to encrypt data on external data media. With Matrix42 HEALTHCARE DATA both hardware- and software-based encryption can be easily implemented.

MALWARE PROTECTION AGAINST RANSOMWARE

Automatically Block Unauthorized Applications

Built-in application controls prevent malicious programs from being executed by ensuring that only authorized applications are launched on machines. The lists of trusted applications and vendors can be customized as needed. Application control takes place in real-time and does not affect the performance of the client infrastructure.

ENHANCED PROTECTION AGAINST DATA ESPIONAGE AND SABOTAGE

Automated Protection Against Unknown Malware in Real-Time

Today’s malware is not detected in a reliable manner, allowing it to reside in the network undetected and strike whenever the hacker chooses to. With the optional Matrix42 Automated Endpoint Security module, you can limit malware activity, including data theft and exfiltration, even if it bypasses your antivirus filter. Even threats whose origin cannot be attributed to a file, such as fileless or in-memory threats, are detected.

ENHANCED PROTECTION THROUGH INFRASTRUCTURE ANALYSIS AND CMDB MANAGEMENT

Automatic IT Asset Recognition and CMDB Update

Inadequate information about IT assets, their network activity, and missing configuration tracking opens the door to serious security risks. With the Matrix42’s optional Secure Discovery and Dependency Mapping module, you will always have up-to-date CMDB data of your IT infrastructure, know the configuration of your medical IT services, and can prevent unplanned changes of and unauthorized access to your clinical networks.

REMOTE MANAGEMENT 

Remote Maintenance of Medical Devices External to the Network

Many medical devices cannot be integrated into the internal hospital network. Nevertheless, in the event of security incidents or urgent maintenance tasks, remote management of external systems may be necessary. Matrix42 HEALTHCARE DATA offers the corresponding remote maintenance tools to support external device management and reporting.
