Healthcare organizations face a number of unique security concerns, including the increasingly interconnected systems between doctors’ offices, hospitals, insurance companies and suppliers. As such, healthcare is being targeted by multiple types of attackers: nuisance attackers (such as the creators of commodity malware), advanced persistent threat (APT) attackers, and cyber criminals.
To battle such attackers, healthcare security teams need to understand:
- Why healthcare is at risk / what threat actors are seeking / how they are doing it
- Why email is the #1 threat vector in Healthcare and how to defend against it
- Best practices and action items for a more robust security program
