Understand Cyber Threats to Health Information

The healthcare and life sciences industry now has the attention of cyber criminals, bringing data breaches at these organizations to endemic levels. Healthcare information protection must be a priority at every level of an organization. Security professionals need to understand the entire threat landscape so they can implement comprehensive, ongoing, enterprise-wide cyber risk management strategies.

A Disturbing Diagnosis

The push to digitize healthcare through electronic health records, connected medical endpoints and health information exchanges makes sensitive medical and personal data an easy target for sophisticated cyber criminals.

A health record is worth up to 10 times the value of a financial record on the black market. A single data breach can cause significant harm from a financial and reputation perspective for the targeted company; and the outcome for impacted patients and consumers can be devastating due to the nature of the stolen information.
