Organizations need to recognize that people will continue to use unauthorized technologies — often in direct violation of organizational policies. This is especially true in the healthcare industry, where the balance between patient care, HIPAA compliance, security issues and privacy further complicate the usage of personal devices, networks and applications.
Why the overt defiance? It’s because people want to use their own convenient, familiar, and friendly technologies to connect to all applications and services. They don’t want to carry around different devices to connect to different systems. Frankly, sometimes it’s just not practical to carry multiple devices or manage a plethora of organizationally-issued apps across devices. So, how should a healthcare organization provide clinicians with technology solutions that allow them the device flexibility they want, without compromising enterprise security and privacy?

What’s needed in this situation is a shift in thinking.

It’s not about requiring trusted enterprise devices at every step of the way anymore.  It’s more about vetting the entire situation for trust—not only the device, but the user, the user’s location and the sensitivity of the data they are trying to access—combining all of the trust factors to make a dynamic decision about who gets access to what information in that specific situation.
