The past few years has seen an explosion of cyber attack activity in the healthcare industry.
But that shouldn’t come as a surprise. Healthcare records are a goldmine for enterprising hackers, and with low security budgets across the industry it’s no wonder that healthcare organizations are considered a soft target.
A cursory glance at the industry’s security profile tells us everything we need to know. There are weaknesses everywhere, and hackers all over the world know it.
Incredibly, from a single successful healthcare breach, a hacker stands to earn anything from $285,000 to $1.7 million.
