Cybercriminals attack healthcare organizations with a growing frequency each year. According to the Ponemon Institute, half of healthcare organizations are attacked by hackers one or more times in a given 12-month period. Ransomware is the most crippling of these threats, locking up critical computer files and systems until ransom is paid. These cyber-attacks can severely impact operations and have the potential to negatively affect patient care. Preparing employees to recognize and prevent malicious threats is an organization's first line of defense.
The Security Awareness in the Healthcare Setting online training course helps change employee behavior by building awareness of security practices, policies and procedures.
