More than 70% of executives at healthcare providers and payers say their information technology has been compromised by cyber-attacks. In 2016, such attacks occurred at a rate of 1 per day. HHS requires entities to report breaches within 60 days of discovery, and only 86 entities reported their breach to HHS within that timeframe.
In brief, our industry continues to be the target of hackers. No other industry is hit harder by cyberattacks than healthcare. Such attacks and breaches puts patient health, provider, member, and personal information at risk.
A survey of healthcare organizations revealed that the majority of healthcare organization’s don’t have confidence in their current protection systems or staff’s ability to provide sufficient protection and don’t know their capabilities, in real time, to detect if their organization’s systems are being compromised.
The magnitude of the security threats against healthcare information has grown exponentially, but the response and budget allowance for securing that information remains far short of what is required.
