Cybersecurity and Healthcare: what you need to know
Ransomware attacks on U.S healthcare organizations are predicted to quadruple by 2021, according to recent industry reports. Hackers are increasingly targeting healthcare due to the vast amounts of personal health information, which is considered 50 times more valuable on the black web than their financial information. The need for the ability to secure personal information is urgent, and requires immediate attention of the medical industry.
2022 CYBERSECURITY CHALLENGES
Malware, ransomware, and viruses
M365 application threats
Hackers deploy malware and ransomware to shut down and control devices, and even servers. Many healthcare organizations tend store health information without proper encryption leaving them vulnerable to external threats. Phishing attacks have been the newest and most successful method of cyber-attacks in which cyber criminals send mass emails from “reputable” sources to obtain sensitive information. Hackers link these emails to misleading websites to entice the user to enter their personal information, mainly their username and password to gain complete access, and commence in account takeover efforts.
