The need for strong cybersecurity measures is more important than ever for the healthcare industry. There are many devices and interconnected systems holding sensitive information such as patient’s personal details and medical records. Healthcare organizations of all kinds need to protect this information at all costs. Not only for their own good and for the privacy of their patients, but also to comply with federal standards, such as HIPAA.
There is also a strong need for cybersecurity awareness for key staff members in the healthcare industry. From administrative staff to doctors, healthcare workers on the frontline are common targets for cyber criminals. There are plenty of hackers out there who specialize in the medical space and know just the right tactics for taking advantage of healthcare workers and focusing on specific networks to attack next.
