Every day it seems there’s another ransomware attack in the healthcare sector. What’s worse is that these types of cyber-attacks are expected to continue to increase. Why do cybercriminals target this industry so heavily?
– Their victims pay the ransom because healthcare practices can’t afford a business interruption
– Large numbers of outdated systems make them vulnerable to attack
– They can’t risk damage to their data – patient records
– Losing access and productivity impacts the community
While the Office for Civil Rights is quick to impose fines and investigate your compliance with HIPAA Regulations, HIPAA doesn’t effectively arm Covered Entities with the tools or guidance they need to protect patient data – or themselves. This recent Cybersecurity Guidance released by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) helps you fill in the gaps.
Don’t miss your chance! Watch at your pace as Art Gross breaks down the Department of Health and Human Services’ recently-issued Cybersecurity Guidelines and the 6 simple steps you can take to protect your organization.
