Healthcare organizations continue to see escalating numbers of cyber attacks. It is no longer a matter of if your organization will be targeted, but when. What is at stake? Everything. Patient lives are at risk when their medical record data is compromised or encrypted by a ransomware attack. The privacy and security of patient information is at risk, as is evident from the hundreds of data breaches that make headlines each year. The financial well-being of your organization is at risk, not only from regulatory fines and penalties, but also from legal fees, settlements and the damage to your organization's reputation. And if you are a C-suite executive or board member, you may also find yourself personally liable for the damages caused by a cyber incident.
