What is Strategic Risk?

Security is a minefield, and few places hold more danger of fatal misstep than the fields of electronic health records, interoperability, Meaningful Use, and patient engagement.

Ever larger security breaches are announced every day. I personally fear the ones which remain unannounced. The ones as yet undiscovered. Why? Because nobody gets up to close a door if they think it is closed. And that leads neatly away from the subject of security, to the subject of Strategic Risk.

It is a requirement for Meaningful Use and HIPAA that organizations create a written plan for worst-case scenarios. In some high-visibility headlines this has not been done and organizations have been penalized heavily. But that really is closing the stable door after the horse has bolted. Security is a moving target. Breaches will always occur. Taking that as a starting point, everything becomes so much clearer. The thing to remember is this: If it can happen, there is a good chance that it will. If a door is open, someone will eventually walk through it. So, plan for it.
