Cipher protects hospitals and medical companies with valuable patient data and critical equipment.
Healthcare companies of all sizes are sitting on an enormous amount of patient data. Credit card data, social security numbers, birth date, and confidential patient health data are all entrusted to these organization. That data is constantly at risk for being exploited by cyber criminals who use the data as leverage in ransomware attacks or execute other fraud with the stolen data.
The computers and IT environment are also at risk. An infected endpoint impacts the ability of a healthcare organizations to function. Furthermore, there are unique elements to healthcare that are important to consider.
Healthcare facilities use many medical devices that are connected to the Internet to help patients. These devices are often more cumbersome to patch. The companies that created the devices might not be releasing updates on a regular basis.
Criminals can target these organization using their suite of tactics. Malware can get into systems via phishing or other vulnerabilities. The criminals can infect computers with ransomware, threatening not just data or company reputation, but also the lives of patients. The statistics regarding the impact of these attacks are startling. The HIPAA Journal reports that 1,531,855 records were breached in February 2020 alone. The cost of these data breaches is on average $408 per record. This cost includes fines and remediation efforts. Work with Cipher to ensure you do not incur these costs and suffer the damage from cyberattack.
