Cybersecurity – Zero Trust Architecture

What is Zero Trust Architecture and what does it mean to me?

Zero Trust Architecture (ZTA) is a cybersecurity approach that is being adopted by many heath systems globally to combat ransomware attacks and hacking into healthcare networks and databases.  It takes a new approach that provides added security even after the firewall has been breached by the attacker.

Canon Medical Informatics is designing our Enterprise Imaging system to be able to take full advantage of ZTA and other innovative cybersecurity technology.

While no system is ever 100% safe from motivated attacker, Canon Medical Informatics is building a system that protects sensitive data from encryption (ransomware) and limits access to databases once the firewall has been breached.  ZTA  works in the same way that a cocoon protects life in nature by wrapping its content in multiple layers of protection while hiding or camouflaging the larva, multiple layers are necessary to protect health information.

Read the cybersecurity whitepaper to discover more about the three levels of protection for healthcare data from start to finish.

HIMSS & ViVE 2022

Canon Medical exhibited in person at the inaugural ViVE conference/CHIME Spring Forum in Miami, Florida.

ViVE/CHIME Spring Forum:

The first-ever ViVE conference was held in collaboration with CHIME’s Spring Forum in Miami, Florida. Talk tracks at the conference and forum centered around digital transformation and technology for the innovation of healthcare business.
