Cybertheft of PHI (protected health information) is on the rise. Ponemon Institute reports in its Sixth Annual Benchmark Study on Privacy & Security of Healthcare Data nearly 90 percent of all healthcare organizations have suffered at least one data breach in the last two years.
In addition to increasing sophistication of cyberattackers, many healthcare organizations lag behind retail and financial organizations when it comes to creating hardened, multilayered security defenses. The cybersecurity challenges facing the healthcare industry are significant and growing in both number and complexity. However, there is a new generation of solutions that can contribute significantly to discovering, analyzing, and mitigating these threats.
