Impact of Cyber Attacks on Healthcare

Using Threat Intelligence to Protect Healthcare

Cyber attacks in the healthcare industry damage much more than reputations and bottom lines. A single ransomware attack can shut down critical care systems, creating dire consequences for patients. With the rise in this class of cyberattack, healthcare organizations are once again challenged to not only protect their patients and their data, maintain HIPAA compliance, maintain and merge old systems with new technology, protect their remote users, but protect the entire healthcare network from complete failure and lockout—resulting in loss of reputation, potential lawsuit, huge payouts, and in extreme cases, loss of life.
