Working from home in healthcare: how to securely access HSCN remotely
To say the least, we’re living in interesting times.
As Covid-19 continues to spread across the globe, an increasing number of people are working from home. This isn’t just within the professional services industries either. Many of those in healthcare need to work remotely as well.
This is, without a doubt, the right thing to do. However, despite its effectiveness in reducing transmission of the virus, remote working increases your exposure to cybersecurity threats.
After all, if more users access your network on different machines, there is a higher chance one of them will cause a data leak. And chances are, they won’t have meant it – human error is one of the top causes of data breaches.
This is why your healthcare business cannot take chances with IT security. You can’t afford downtime, especially during a pandemic.
In this blog, we’ll show you how healthcare professionals can access vital HSCN data remotely, without sacrificing on IT security.
Why health and care organisations should invest now
You may think to yourself, that if you set up a VPN on your machines that will keep your business safe. It will, for a while, but it’s not a long-term solution. Without a specialist solution, you risk leaving your business exposed to cyber threats.
What’s more, the NHS are decommissioning the old N3 network. All health and care organisations must connect to HSCN by August 2020.
We do not know how long this pandemic will last. But we do know that healthcare providers are facing a considerable challenge. So, there’s an argument for moving sooner, rather than later. It would allow you to focus on more important activities as the situation develops.
