Cyberattacks make headlines, and healthcare is one of the hardest-hit sectors
Why is that the case? Healthcare organisations hold massive volumes of personally identifiable information (PII), protected health information (PHI), and financial data—all ripe targets for cybercriminals. With multiple devices and applications in digital interventions, loopholes can compromise this sensitive information. A single misstep that exposes patient data can lead to serious consequences, including fines, loss of patient trust, and widespread reputational damage. IBM reports that the cost per breach in healthcare tops $10 million—and they’re happening more frequently.
