Healthcare's Security Pain Points
Medical records are cyber's new goldmine. Not many industries can say that cybersecurity is a life-and-death issue, except for healthcare institutions. Equipment that we have come to rely on to diagnose critical illnesses and provide life support are now embedded with computers that can’t easily be modified. Electronic Health Records have provided new, unique risks that to be dealt with.
Leading cyber security experts claim that medical records have become one of the most sought after data types, worth 10 times more than credit card information. As stated by Forbes, a single medical health record could be worth hundreds or even thousands of dollars, while the going rate for social security and credit card numbers is 10 and 25 cents, consecutively. The $3 trillion U.S. Healthcare industry is continuing to headline as a desirable cyber attack target, while many healthcare computer systems and networks are still not up to date with their security technology and procedures.
