In 2018, these threats will continue and cybercriminals will likely get more creative despite better awareness among healthcare organizations at the executive level for the funding needed to protect themselves.

Healthcare Security Consulting with CyberSecOp

Healthcare organizations rely on us for compliance, implementing security solutions, security program, and safeguards.  

Healthcare organizations make good targets for ransomware attacks because they don’t typically have sophisticated backup systems and other resiliency measures like large corporations. Ransomware attacks have become increasingly sophisticated and often begin with an email attachment opened by an unwitting employee. The malicious code crawls through the computer system, encrypting and locking data folders and the computer’s operating system.
