Healthcare Data is Under Attack

Your firewalls help your practice to build a fortress around your patient’s health information… but cyber criminals are experts at spotting your vulnerabilities and breaking through.

When it comes to healthcare, your practice is full of experts on how to heal, treat, and care for patients. This doesn’t always mean you know how to maintain your practice’s information and protect against a breach. Are you concerned about…

Data Breaches

System Downtime

Data Loss

Software Expenses

Data security needs to be top of mind at your practice. Are you putting it front and center?

Defining Data Security in Healthcare/Data Breach Facts & Figures

Data security is defined as protecting digital information from unauthorized individuals or sources that may seek to utilize it for nefarious actions (i.e. cyberattacks, data breaches).

According to HealthIT Security, data breaches will cost those in healthcare 6.5M by the end of 2019. This stifling number trickles down to about $429 per patient record. To put this number into perspective against other fields experiencing breaches, the healthcare sphere spends upwards of 60% more than all other sectors.

As you can see, breaches have steadily increased every year and with that so have the costs for practices, like yours, experiencing breaches.

Data Security/Breach in Perspective

Are you struggling to dedicate time and resources to data security initiatives?

Does it seem daunting, time extensive, or downright unnecessary in the grand scheme of things?

Many small, independent practices believe that their practice will not become the target of a cybercriminal due to the minimal amount of information their database possesses. This could not be anything further from the truth. Healthcare data is rich in personal identifiers that cybercriminals look for, and they know that practices will shell out money to retrieve those records once a ransom is requested.
