About the Healthcare sector
The healthcare sector is about as highly regulated as they come, with workers having access to incredibly confidential patient data. Healthcare providers therefore need a service provider that is able to demonstrate a high level of compliance with regards to handling sensitive data.
Healthcare organisations invariably have a significant amount of mobile workers who can be required at multiple locations on any given day to visit patients and clinics. As such, connectivity and secure access to all vital systems are paramount in order to provide a seamless, confidential service.

Healthcare Services Sector In The News
A Bupa employee obtained the information of 547,000 Bupa customers over a 2 month period at the start of 2017. The employee accessed the information from the companies CRM system and sent sensitive information to his personal email account in the form of bulk reports. Bupa were only informed of the data breach when a 3rd party noticed the data was being sold on the dark web. The ICO fined Bupa £175,000 and concluded that they didn’t routinely monitor interactions with the CRM nor were they able to detect unusual activity such as bulk data extracts. Had this data breach occurred in the GDPR era the fine would have been substantially higher.
Why was it avoidable?
Admittedly, monitoring CRM systems has long been an issue for organisations in any sector. However, that was before Desktop 365. With Desktop 365 it’s possible to have granular control over user access as well benefiting from intelligent analytics that can profile and monitor users, even taking pro-active steps to counteract potential threats. Access control can include locking down or restricting the use of personal email accounts, watermarking data, flagging if large downloads take place, preventing USB access or copy and paste etc. Desktop 365 is ideal for healthcare companies wishing to add a much needed additional layer of security to critical applications hosting sensitive patient data. It can help to secure apps regardless of location, be they on-premise, web or SaaS.
