Description:
Healthcare organizations continue to digitally transform themselves. This transformation seeks to improve the quality of the case, increase patient access, and reduce costs. However, these goals are at odds with information security goals, as healthcare is the most attacked industry in the U.S. As healthcare continues to open pop-up clinics, establish patient portals, and create new remote telemedicine ventures, it must also keep patient care secure. What can healthcare, the most attacked industry, do about cyber defense and what lessons can other industries learn from healthcare?
