Securing Your Healthcare Data in the Cloud
It’s no surprise that you have concerns about the privacy and security of protected health information (PHI) in the cloud. In 2019, there was more data stolen than ever before, with a total of 7.9 billion records compromised.
Healthcare is the #1 most attacked industry and pays an average of $429 per breached record, the highest cost per record across industries.
And the healthcare industry has a unique set of challenges to consider: Defending against cyberattacks designed to compromise sensitive PHI while protecting patient privacy and remaining compliant with regulations like HIPAA, GDPR, HDS, CNIL, and other healthcare privacy regulations.
- The average cost of a breach within the healthcare industry is $6.45 million.
- 73% of breaches in the industry are the result of unauthorized or inadvertent actions of employees.
- Healthcare breaches can often take the longest to identify, up to 236 days.
Why? Insufficient technology controls to protect data and enforce policies is one of the biggest challenges facing healthcare organizations.
