The healthcare industry is in a state of flux. The changes it’s been undergoing over the past decade — including widespread digitization, external attacks, and internal threats — have been accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Based on the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office statistics, we can see that healthcare organizations are routinely targeted for their sensitive data and are falling victim to a wide array of cyberattacks. The consequences are more than financial: As demonstrated by the Equifax breach, medical information is highly personal and has a devastating impact when exposed.
The 2021 Healthcare Data Breach Report examines the trends behind the latest cybersecurity attacks on healthcare organizations and highlights the most pressing threats of 2020 so you can protect your organization from future attacks.
In this infographic, we dive into the details of these incidents. We examine:
