Cyber Security Primer for Healthcare

The level of trust we extend to medical professionals is inherently a personal decision: if we hold back information from our healthcare providers, we risk getting less than the best care they can offer.

The bonds of trust, while vital to ensuring positive patient outcomes, are understandably fragile. This is of little concern to cybercriminals and hackers, who have increasingly targeted and victimized a growing number of healthcare-related organizations that individuals entrust with personal information.

Not only are these attacks lucrative for the criminals behind them, but far too often, they are very easy to execute when adequate safeguards and protections are not in place.
