Health care organizations are at the forefront of cyber security. Arguably, they’re ahead of many other industries because they’re a top target for cyber criminals. A single patient record is worth 10 times more than a stolen credit card number. Given the value of healthcare related personally identifiable information (PII), it is no wonder that security incidents have soared by 60 percent and the cost of healthcare breaches have jumped by 282 percent*.
While it’s imperative that health care organizations invest in cyber security technology, training and techniques, it’s also critical that they share information and best practices. That’s what many information security professionals in the health care industry will be doing at the 2016 HIMSS Cybersecurity Hub on Oct. 26 in Cleveland, Ohio.
