Cybersecurity for Healthcare

Learn how ThreatAdvice can help protect your hospital, pharmacy, office, or practice.

According to Forbes, healthcare companies continually top the list as the most cyber-attacked industry. As the healthcare space continues to digitize all of its vast amounts of information, it remains an increasingly attractive target for cybercriminals.

Unique Challenges

Cybersecurity in a healthcare setting presents challenges, unlike other business environments. The highly sensitive nature of healthcare records makes them a particularly attractive target for cybercriminals, and a breach of healthcare records can pose a significant risk to your enterprise. A single cybersecurity threat in a healthcare enterprise can have an escalating impact that reaches across the entire organization including administration, healthcare staff, and patients.

As healthcare networks become more distributed so that a comprehensive patient overview is available to all providers, cybercriminals have a myriad of entry points into healthcare systems.

This not only includes clinics and doctor’s offices but also areas such as Internet-based consulting with remote healthcare providers and with providers relying heavily on information sharing across disparate users and departments while patients and guests continue to demand instant access to medical information and scheduling.

Medical records command top dollar on the black market because they contain an extensive amount of personal identifying information which can be used to open fake accounts, commit fraud, or even for blackmail. And unfortunately, medical identity fraud takes longer to detect than other types of fraud, therefore the damage that could easily become extensive and unsalvageable before it is discovered. If a health-related company does not do an excellent job at protecting this information, they can be hit with regulatory fines, be sued by its patients, and also incur many other reputational and monetary costs that come with breaches.
