The healthcare industry is fast becoming the biggest target for cybercrime. In fact, 94% of healthcare facilities reported being the victims of a cyber attack in 2019.
The healthcare industry is targeted for the wealth of data stored in their networks. A dedicated hacker can gain access to dates of birth, financial and insurance information, social security numbers, and other sensitive patient data following a successful breach. The weapon of choice for healthcare cybercrime is ransomware because of its ease of deployment and overall effectiveness of the attack, but that doesn’t mean the hackers won’t use other malware attempts to breach your network.
HIPAA (the Health and Insurance Portability and Privacy Act) has stringent requirements in place for healthcare facilities to protect patient information, but the HHS (Health and Human Services) has released ten important cybersecurity practices to keep your network safe and compliant.
