Healthcare is a huge industry made up of a range of organisations all working to improve the quality of life for billions of people around the globe. Unfortunately, it’s also one of the sectors most targeted by cybercriminals.
This can be attributed to the massive amounts of personally identifiable information and IP on new drugs and treatments that healthcare organisations hold, which are of huge value if they fall into the wrong hands.
And then there’s the potential to cause massive disruption to vital services. Just think of the WannaCry ransomware that temporarily put the NHS out of action in May 2017.
In ‘Heal thyself: Cybersecurity for healthcare’, we look at the cyberthreats faced by the healthcare sector, as well as the steps organisations should take to better protect patient information and IP and to prevent disruption to services.
