The healthcare industry is a prime target of cybercriminals: Hospitals, clinics, and other providers hold rich sources of sensitive personal information. This data can be exploited or held “hostage” in increasingly prevalent ransomware attacks.  

By accessing patient-critical information and then withholding it from the provider, hackers threaten the operations and security of healthcare organisations and the privacy and safety of their patients. Each year the problem continues to grow.  

The industry also suffers from its use of legacy systems and complicated IT infrastructures that frequently leave vulnerabilities for attackers to exploit. Data breaches can close hospitals, which directly impacts patient care.

Amidst these growing challenges, healthcare providers need a solid, well-implemented strategy for cybersecurity that will not only protect patient and organisational data, but also help them take care of those in need. 

That’s why we’ve developed The Healthcare Cybersecurity Checklist. Learn how to build a stronger security posture with advice, tips, and best practices on protecting your organisation.

Inside the checklist is the latest information on:  

  • Creating a security-conscious workforce 
  • How to take inventory and control over hardware and software assets 
  • Analysing, prioritising, and managing vulnerabilities 
  • The importance of securing hardware and software configurations on mobile devices, laptops, workstations, and servers 

The bottom line? Security isn’t a project at your healthcare organisation, it’s a process.
