Hacking Incidents Rose 42% in 2020, 31M Patients Impacted. Reports show that Healthcare continues to be a favorite and profitable target for bad actors.
- 758 Healthcare Data Breaches
- 7 Million Patient Records stolen
- Each record worth up to $1000 on the dark web
- In one example, Universal Health Services, lost $67 million in lost revenue and recovery efforts after falling victim to a ransomware attack for more than three weeks in the Fall of 2020.
It seems ironic to me that in Healthcare ‘prevention is better than cure” but it seems when it comes to cybersecurity Healthcare organizations overlook this. Is it time to change?
Maybe it’s time review and assess your cybersecurity risk.
