Healthcare Cyber Heists in 2019

Carbon Black

In healthcare, prevention often stands to be the best cure. This holds true for both physical and digital health. A person’s digital (and often physical) health can be directly tied to the cyber-security posture of their healthcare providers. And, for these healthcare providers, it appears some progress is being made. Regular education of employees, greater awareness of modern threats and the prospect of building out larger threat hunting teams can all go a long way in helping to curb attacks. As we’ve learned from this survey of some of the world’s leading healthcare CISOs, it does not appear that the volume and frequency of attacks will be abating anytime soon. Extreme vigilance among these security teams will be required to help stem the tide in 2019 and beyond.
