Geisinger Health System is an industry leader when it comes to using big data to improve healthcare, patient experience, and drive organizational efficiency. And when it comes to securing all that data, much of the responsibility fell to Bipin Karunakaran, vice president of enterprise data management, who worked with a clinical partner to implement a secure big data platform.
The platform protects PHI and business sensitive information (BSI) by tokenizing, encrypting, and creating zones of data. The solution also includes auditing of user activity, real-time behavioral analysis, and alerts for malicious activity.
In this session, Bipin gives an overview of the Geisinger big data platform and provides insights to attendees looking to better secure their big data without choking off access.
