Compliancy Group is conducting a webinar for healthcare professionals covering the major threats that the healthcare industry is facing.
Compliance experts are going to discuss threats like malware, ransomware and phishing in connection with HIPAA and patient data privacy and security.
Cybersecurity plays a very important role in healthcare today than ever before. Hackers regard the healthcare industry as a weak target. They like to target the industry considering the big volumes of data stored and the high value of patient information on the black market.
April 2019 had the largest number of healthcare data breaches in just one month. It had more healthcare data breaches reported than any month in 2018 or in any other year. The growing frequency of attacks on varying sizes of organizations shows how important it is to strengthen cybersecurity.
Cyberattacks are not just adversely impacting the operations of organizations in the healthcare industry. The attacks also put the privacy of patient’s protected health information (PHI) at risk. In the past, it was enough to simply employ standard security tools, but now because of the complex nature of attacks, new solutions are necessary to guard against cyberattacks.
Securing against cyberattacks while making certain of compliance with HIPAA is a big challenge. Oversights can very easily bring about a really expensive breach or regulatory penalty.
In the latest Compliancy Group webinar, you will learn from compliancy experts the inns and outs of the regulations and policies. You will also discover more information about cybersecurity with regard to the demands of the HIPAA and HITECH Act.
