Are your employees prepared to defend your organization against security attacks?

Patient records have never been more coveted. As their black market value continues to rise, so do attempts to illegally obtain them. Cyber criminals have realized the healthcare industry has fallen behind others in terms of data protection, and the ramifications can be crippling to organizations not prepared to deal with today's threats. 

Criminal attacks, having grown 125% over the last five years, are the number one cause of healthcare data breaches. Within the past two years, 94% of healthcare organizations had at least one data breach. Attacks can lead to fines, loss of revenue, a damaged reputation, and even a loss of trust patients have in the organization. Policy and education aren’t enough to safeguard your organization from an attack or breach. 

Hackers are constantly looking for the weakest link in your security program, and that’s your employees. A comprehensive security awareness program identifies all of your behavioral risks and includes regular training and reinforcement that seeks to change employee behavior and build a risk-aware culture.
