Preventing Cyber Attacks On Hospitals
We are in an age where technology is everywhere, especially within the healthcare industry. The recent cyber attack on Community Health Systems has demonstrated our need to ensure that our hospitals and healthcare networks are protected from cyber threats in the future.
Democratic Arizona Representative, Kyrsten Sinema, is concerned that our increasing reliance on digital healthcare technology is making our health systems more vulnerable. To ensure the safety of the healthcare system, she is asking the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Health and Human Services to provide more security for hospitals and healthcare networks by offering grants or loans to help them improve their cyber infrastructure and digital security systems. This will assist in the overall protection of the highly personal data that healthcare systems deal with on a daily basis.
As the security measures and protocols are continuously striving to adapt to newly developed breach tactics, it is very important to consider transferring this growing exposure to a viable insurance partner.
