Healthcare is one of the most vulnerable sectors to cyber-attacks. As it continues to expand exponentially and moves to digitally enabled healthcare services, cyber-criminals are trying to take advantage of the weaknesses and security vulnerabilities. With the global pandemic, healthcare organizations continue to fall victim to data leaks involving compromise on privacy, personal information, and sensitive health records maliciously being sold or distributed on the Dark Web. Educating your staff and establishing a strong IT foundation can help safeguard your client’s privacy and personal information. Agencies need to work closely with their software vendors to ensure that their business is properly protected.
