The survey measures progress toward ensuring the privacy and security of healthcare information, as more records are digitized and shared, and as new cyberthreats emerge and evolve.

The Web-based research study was created by Information Security Media Group, publisher of HealthcareInfoSecurity, with the counsel of top healthcare and security experts. The survey explores how information security leaders at hospitals, clinics, health plans and integrated delivery systems are taking steps to respond to today's key challenges.

The survey will:

  • Examine current and emerging cyberthreats facing healthcare providers in 2015;
  • Assess the evolving state of information security at U.S. healthcare organizations;
  • Showcase the steps security leaders are taking to prevent breaches, protect electronic health records and address the risks posed by mobile devices;
  • Project the emerging technologies and strategies where healthcare organizations are investing their resources.

The annual survey, sponsored this year by Caradigm, (ISC)², and ZixCorp, aims to give healthcare information security professionals and other senior executives insights that they can track and measure over time.

Results will be presented in a variety of ways on the HealthcareInfoSecurity website, including an in-depth report, expert interviews and webinars featuring exclusive insight and analysis.

The survey is now available online.
