Windows XP poses significant risk to HIPAA security

Email This Post Print This Post

 

Microsoft’s decision to discontinue technical support for users of its Windows® XP operating system could significantly affect information security in healthcare, according to The National Law Review.  

Microsoft stopped releasing security updates for Windows XP April 8, which could make users of this operating system vulnerable to hackers. This does not necessarily mean that covered entities and business associates that use Windows XP are not HIPAA compliant. Organizations that use this operating system should determine whether any ePHI in their systems pass through the operating system and should review current methods for protecting ePHI, according to The National Law Review.
