Healthcare Data Breaches are on the Rise

Hospitals, clinics and healthcare organizations have become a preferred hacker target because of the amount of payment and consumer data being accepted. The 2019 Cost of a Data Breach Report, sponsored by the Ponemon Institute and IBM Security, found that the costliest breaches are experienced by healthcare organizations, with an average mitigation cost of $6.45 million and a per record cost of $429.

Protect Your Payment and Patient Data with Bluefin

Bluefin specializes in payment and data security solutions to protect healthcare organizations. Our flagship products include our PCI-validated point-to-point encryption (P2PE) solution for the protection of point-of-sale cardholder data and our ShieldConex® data security platform for the protection of consumer, medical and payment data entered online. Combined, P2PE and ShieldConex provide the most secure and holistic solution for healthcare data.

Protecting Patient Data with Healthcare Data Encryption

PCI-validated P2PE is the gold standard in POS payment security. Cardholder data is immediately encrypted within a P2PE-approved device and encryption is done outside of the healthcare environment. The goal is to prevent clear-text cardholder data from being present in the healthcare environment, which could otherwise be accessible in the event of a breach.

ShieldConex utilizes Bluefin’s proprietary SAFE™ (Shielded Access Form Element) tokenization and iFrame solutions to secure Personally Identifiable Information (PII), Personal Health Information (PHI), and payment data entered online. The goal is to immediately encrypt / tokenize online data entered through a web form, so that if a breach does occur, this valuable data is masked.

Specializing in Stand-Alone and Integrated Payment Security

Bluefin’s security solutions are provided through our product suite – including PayConex, QuickSwipe and ShieldConex – or healthcare organizations can utilize their current processor or payment gateway to get our PCI-validated P2PE solution.

“Due to the complexity of our hospital network, we wanted to implement a solution that would provide our customers with the most secure method of processing a payment card transaction at our 45 locations. We implemented a PCI-listed P2PE Solution to reduce the number of PCI DSS requirements that apply to our cardholder data environment (CDE), to secure our patients payment data and to mitigate the risk of a payment data breach.”
