Cyber Security Services for Health Care Entities
Organizations in every industry face increasingly sophisticated threats from cyber criminals, but for health care organizations, it’s an especially serious risk. Since 2009, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has cataloged[i] more than 1,600 reports of data breaches in the health care sector which involved 500 or more comprehensive patient medical records. Health care entities represent a target-rich environment for cyber thieves, because they hold and have access to detailed personal information for tens or even hundreds of thousands of individuals – data which can be held for ransom or sold on the dark net for profit.
