In a special feature for Cybersecurity Awareness Month, healthcare trade site HealthIT Answers solicited insights on digital supply chain security in healthcare. Coviant Software CEO Greg Hoffer offered his expertise on the importance of securing processes associated with the exchange of data.
“When the processes by which data files are moved along the digital supply chain are not properly secured, threat actors can take advantage. Think of it like using a drawbridge over which data moves in and out of the organization’s castle. Even with a deep moat or thick walls, if you don’t secure access to the drawbridge and verify the files coming in, or encrypt the files going out, you put the organization at risk of falling victim to a cyberattack.” — Greg Hoffer, CEO, Coviant Software
