Today hospitals are more vulnerable than any other type of organization due to outdated systems, lack of experienced cyber personnel, highly valuable data, and added incentive to pay ransoms in order to regain patient data. These facts are attracting more and more cybercriminals to the healthcare market. Abacode helps healthcare organizations manage these risks with a sound cybersecurity framework that enables the organization to face these realities with confidence.

Currently the healthcare industry accounts for around four out of every five data breaches and 2020 looks to be another record-breaking year. The cost to the healthcare industry from those breaches is expected to reach $4 billion in 2020.

Statistics to Consider:
