Healthcare

Increased cybercriminal activity following the pandemic has exposed the healthcare sector, putting compliance, data, and intellectual property protection at risk.

Overview

Cyber Security in Healthcare

Malicious actors view healthcare organisations as a profitable target for ransomware and other exploitations. This is due to the sensitive personal and medical data the healthcare sector handles, as well as the importance of this data in managing operations and patient care.

Financially motivated cybercriminals are attempting to gain access to sensitive personal information held by health organisations (such as names, dates of birth, addresses, medical histories, Medicare details, and health fund information) in order to commit identity theft or sell the information in cybercrime marketplaces.

Attacks on hospitals, health trusts, GP offices, and other healthcare entities, as the scope and sophistication of cybercrime grows, have the potential to result in the loss of sensitive patient data and the disruption of important services. Gridware can help you protect your organisation’s data in the even of a breach and meet compliance requirements.

KEY QUESTIONS

Key security questions for healthcare leaders

COMPLIANCE

Cyber security compliance in the healthcare industry

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a global impact on the government sector, cybercriminals seek to exploit data and assets relating to vaccine development, treatments, research, and national responses to the COVID-19 outbreak, as this information is now more valuable and prioritised globally.

This abrupt transition has exposed the government industry, placing large risk on compliance as well as data and intellectual property security.

With years of experience collaborating with government organisations, our professionals have a greater understanding of the security and compliance concerns your organisation confronts and how to provide solutions to address them.
