Recent global events have served as a catalyst towards a highly remote, cloud first environment, affecting industries the world over. As organizations contend to find their footing, cyber threat actors are amplifying their efforts in targeting what has quickly become the gold standard for data–medical records.
The vast majority of healthcare organizations utilize and store protected health information (PHI), which is composed of patients’ sensitive information. HIPAA, the privacy rule that classifies PHI, describes protected health information as medical history, Social Security numbers, personal financial data, and more. Undoubtedly, this sensitive information attracts a lot of attention from malicious entities that aim to exploit this data for political or monetary gain.
Despite widespread cloud adoption, most healthcare organizations have not established the proper security measures for protecting critical data. While traditional, on-premises tools like firewalls were useful for storing and protecting data on-premises, it proved incapable of securing downloads, uploads, and shares of data at large. The consequences of relying solely upon traditional security solutions range from limited IT oversight to catastrophic data leakage. Unfortunately, most cloud security vendors are not far removed and the reason is because they subserviently follow the cadence of their peers. They focus on consolidating antiquated security tools (that are inherently flawed), rather than focusing resources on modern solutions.
However, Constellation’s distributed security infrastructure is uniquely positioned to address these concerns. It is capable of cryptographically securing patients records, by compiling large data sets of PHI onto an organizational para-chain. This enables patients’ to have complete governance over their sensitive medical records, while granting relevant healthcare professionals contextual access to relevant data. In order to circumvent data breaches, Constellation deployed a directed acyclic graph (DAG) centric protocol, allowing healthcare organizations to safeguard patient information and uphold compliancies. As Constellation scales its network through the assortment of nodes (IoMT devices), it becomes more efficient and secured, allowing it to expand its reach across larger sets of data.
It is very common for medical professionals to access data from multiple endpoints as they service patients in multiple facilities. As the primary storage and management solution for medical records, these distributed database systems are a prime target for threat vectors, specifically in the form of spoofing and data breaches (for data in transit). By cryptographically safeguarding medical records with Constellation, healthcare organizations are able to appropriate an asset value to said data, while evading cyberthreats. As such, Constellation is quickly becoming the industry-wide standard blockchain solution, for securing data in transit. Moreover, the distributed security infrastructure is uniquely positioned to provide in-line security for transitioning data between all endpoints, regardless of the data structures’ complexity. This enables Constellation to service traditional enterprises across multiple industries, improving the overall productivity of cross-functional teams and accessibility to sensitive data.
