Last year saw the highest level of cyber attacks in the history of the healthcare industry. Over 100 million healthcare records were compromised putting healthcare on the map as a prime target for hackers. With $6.2 billion lost, cyber security is a major concern that still has not been appropriately assessed and solved across the industry. In their recent Health Care Industry Cyber Security Task Force report, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services stated that the majority of healthcare organizations in the US are severely flawed when it comes to cyber security, plus the industry as a whole lags behind other sectors in safeguarding systems and sensitive information. The medical industry actually experienced more breaches from cyber attacks than any other industry, and the recent dramatic rise of ransomware has only compounded the issues. Adding to these risks is the flawed perception by small organizations that only the large hospitals are being targeted by cyber-criminals. In fact, all organizations, no matter their size are being targeted due to the value and sensitive nature of their data.
