Prevent a medical records breach with Mimecast
The possibility of a medical records breach that exposes private patient data is a nightmare for healthcare organizations. Healthcare regulatory frameworks like HIPAA and HITECH stipulate strict guidelines for the protection of patient information. Violations can result not only in fines and legal action, but in damage to reputation and patient satisfaction, not to mention the incalculable threats to patients' privacy, health and financial well-being when a medical records breach occurs.
Ransomware in healthcare settings is the latest threat to healthcare cybersecurity and the security of patient information. A ransomware attack involves a security or medical records breach that enables attackers to take control of data or systems, and to demand a ransom in exchange for returning access to these valuable assets. Hospitals are particularly vulnerable to this kind of medical records breach, as having access to patient data and information systems is critical to providing patient care and saving lives.
Ransomware is just one of many email-related threats that can result in a medical records breach. To protect patients and the organization, IT organizations need healthcare industry cyber security solutions specifically designed for email security. That's where Mimecast can help.
