Layer 8 Security in the News – Modern health IT systems and apps offer Christmas gifts to the hacker

Layer 8 Security’s Managing Director, Kevin Hyde, was the featured expert offering his insights in Modern Healthcare’s article on the recent Quest Diagnostics breach and its relevancy to HIPAA compliance and to organizations in the marketplace.

““The patients themselves are not typically the threat,” said Kevin Hyde, managing director of consulting firm Layer 8 Security. “The way a lot of applications are built is they’re pieced together. There are relationships between vendors.” And those relationships can sometimes leave openings for hackers, Hyde said.”
