The article discusses the five largest cybersecurity threats which include: ransomware attacks, e-mail phishing attacks, accidental or intentional data loss, theft of equipment or data, and attacks against connected medical devices that may affect patient safety.

We Can Help
Although changes in technology have allowed for improved patient care, often at reduced costs to health care entities, greater risks are occurring in the health care industry due to cyber-attacks. Being compliant and having proper security measures in place will allow health care entities to better protect patient data and assist an entity in preventing a breach of data. We can help reduce or eliminate the penalty assessed against that entity should a breach occur.
