The healthcare industry collects, retains, and transmits patient data as part of routine care delivery. This has led to a never before seen amount of attacks by cybercriminals. The value of stolen medical records is greater than that of credit card information on the black market. The move to electronic health records, the increase of networked medical devices and the need to share information via exchanges and on-demand are just some of the changes, and challenges, healthcare organizations are faced with. It is critical that healthcare organizations adapt quickly while taking appropriate actions to protect patient data. SCA understands the challenges you face.
