Maintaining cybersecurity in today’s technologically driven world is vital to the health of any business. Media outlets continue to report on large-scale data breaches affecting millions of consumers’ information and costing companies millions, and sometimes even billions, of dollars to rectify.
Organizations, particularly those within or touching the healthcare industry, remain the most attractive of targets for cyber attackers given the higher and lasting value of personal health information.
The goal of this book is to help bolster stakeholders’ knowledge of cybersecurity in the healthcare industry, with the aim of pinpointing current and impending threats to the industry’s data security. The topics to be addressed include types of cybersecurity threats; ransomware in healthcare; how to prepare for and respond to cybersecurity attacks; the cost of inadequate security measures; and managing privacy and cybersecurity risks.
