Today’s healthcare environment has been revolutionized by technology and digital capabilities, empowering providers and patients throughout the healthcare journey. As digitization in the health sector has expanded, interoperability between systems has become increasingly necessary to provide the highest quality, most effective patient care. With rising interoperability, however, comes increased security risks and heightened vulnerability to devastating cyber incidents.
Hospitals and health systems possess an enormous amount of electronic health records containing highly valuable patient data, making the healthcare sector one of the most desirable targets for threat actors in the cyber environment.
After the onset of the global COVID-19 pandemic, the healthcare industry was particularly vulnerable to cyber attacks. In 2021, the number of healthcare data breaches reached an all-time high and cost health systems an average of $9.2 million per breach. That’s the highest average cost for a data breach of any industry.
Given the rapid pace of technological change, broadening regulatory standards, the expansion of the Internet of Things (IoT) and the growing sophistication of cyber threats, the evolving risks in healthcare can be overwhelming — especially if you don’t have the skills or bandwidth to closely oversee and manage your healthcare organization’s cybersecurity operations.
