When dealing a data breach, it's important for healthcare facilities to understand the cause of the breach, and not just work towards a solution, according to an article on the Healthcare IT Security website.
For instance, analyzing logs will allow a healthcare facility to look deep inside of its network and understand the flow of data and quickly analyze which part of the infrastructure was breached and then better understand why.
Also, risk within an environment should be weighted based on the type of system and what data it houses. If a small part of the environment gets breached, what risk does it pose?
New security solutions allow a facility to find the root cause of a breach. An analytics approach can examine failures within the network related to configurations, patch levels and updates.
