Cybersecurity Awareness Month Week 2: Updating Legacy Systems
In practical terms, there exist multiple benefits in updating legacy healthcare systems to tackle cybersecurity challenges. Updating enhances the healthcare system’s security standards by implementing modern security protocols and features, reducing the vulnerability to cyberattacks. Also, it ensures compliance with evolving healthcare data protection regulations to safeguard patient information, and prevent potential legal and financial consequences. Lastly, the enhancements to interoperability facilitate seamless data sharing among healthcare providers, resulting in improved patient care and overall system efficiency, which perfectly align with the objectives promoted by the Trusted Exchange Framework and Common Agreement (TEFCA) guidelines and standards.
