The past few years has seen an explosion of cyber attack activity in the healthcare industry.
But that shouldn’t come as a surprise. Healthcare records are a goldmine for enterprising hackers, and with low security budgets across the industry it’s no wonder that healthcare organizations are considered a soft target.
A cursory glance at the industry’s security profile tells us everything we need to know. There are weaknesses everywhere, and hackers all over the world know it.
Incredibly, from a single successful healthcare breach, a hacker stands to earn anything from $285,000 to $1.7 million.
Small wonder, then, that healthcare breaches have become an almost daily occurrence.
So if you’re in the healthcare industry, you’re probably wondering what you can possibly do to keep your organization secure. Healthcare organizations are often highly complex environments, which can make the task of maintaining a strong security profile a real challenge… so where do you start?
In my opinion, the very best place to begin is with your users. Here’s why.
