Falling victim to a malicious attack puts immense strain on a workforce already under pressure to keep pace with drastic industry shifts. But, since healthcare continues to be a top target for cybercriminals, having a solid cybersecurity stack is no longer a luxury but a necessity.
You can protect your patients and providers and keep sensitive information from getting into the wrong hands by deploying robust, scalable security tools that safeguard your organization from unprecedented cyberattacks and help build a future-proof environment.
Healthcare data is one of the most valuable types on the black market, making it the target of relentless attack. As the value of patient data has skyrocketed, so have the number of data breaches affecting the industry.
In fact, cybersecurity breaches hit an all-time high in 2021, exposing a record amount of patients' Protected Health Information (PHI), which impacted 45 million individuals — up from 34 million in 2020.
With so much confidential data at stake, these types of breaches are not just costly. They can also jeopardize:
Battling data breaches and defending your information ecosystem requires the right technology. Adopting state-of-the-art healthcare cybersecurity tools will help you navigate an evolving threatscape, keep persistent threats at bay, identify and detect potential risks, and enable effective recovery.
Telehealth services have quickly become a desired option for countless patients thanks to their accessibility, convenience and low cost. However, telemedicine also presents new risks, making cybersecurity vital to delivering safe care from anywhere.
