Protecting healthcare systems against ransomware attacks
Healthcare organizations (HCOs) especially at risk of ransomware and other cyberattacks given all the networks, data sets, devices and users tying into and sharing information across the care system. The push to adopt virtual care anywhere models and incorporate the latest monitoring and operational devices, apps and services keep HCOs in never-ending positions of cybersecurity vulnerability.
The consequences of data breaches and ransomware attacks are very high in healthcare, with patient privacy (HIPAA) and safety just the tip of an iceberg that can sink a hospital or health system for days or weeks. More than 550 HCOs experienced a data breach in 2021, according to HHS, exposing the personal health information (PHI) of at least 40 million people.
In this eBook, you will learn how to:
- Reduce risk and “attack surface” by adopting a “zero trust” approach to cybersecurity.
- Simplify legacy infrastructures and security tools for more powerful, cloud-based protection.
- Use automation to lessen the burden HCO staff face from cyber threat defense and response.
