Addressing Vendor Risk Management Through Secured Access

Posted on

Sponsored By: Securelink

Healthcare relies heavily upon its business associates and third-party vendors to ensure seamless transactions, bolster care quality, and other processes. Covered entities employ systems to support access to data. In doing so, vendors can actually increase risk to provider organizations when those access points and contractual relationships aren’t properly managed.

As healthcare has continued to be a prime target for hackers, as well, the use of those digital environments needs to be protected to ensure providers aren’t exposing their organization to HIPAA compliance issues, security incidents or even a breach of patient data.

As the Vice President of Assurance Strategy & Community Development for HITRUST, Mike Parisi has extensive experience with third-party assurance reporting, such as HITRUST readiness and certification, Agreed Upon Procedure, and customized AT-101 engagements. He’s led more than 500 controls-related engagements, primarily in the health and financial service industries. He also has several years of experience implementing large Oracle ERP systems, specializing in the General Ledger and Governance Risk and Compliance modules.

During this presentation, Parisi will outline the challenges of vendor risk management, while focusing on the benefits and drawbacks of various identity access methods. He’ll also highlight the increasing need for vendor privileged access management.
