SUMMARY

The healthcare industry is among the most attractive targets for cybercriminals because of the high value of the information it manages; victimized organizations, such as hospitals, are often willing to pay ransomware demands; healthcare systems are normally easier to penetrate and disable because of a general level of underinvestment in cyber security; and there is a lack of security expertise in the healthcare industry. However, there are a number of steps that healthcare organizations can take – focused on implementing appropriate strategies, policies, processes, training and cyber security defenses – that will mitigate much of the risk that healthcare organizations face, making it a less attractive target for cyber criminals.

SPONSOR OF THIS PAPER

Mimecast makes business email and data safer for more than 26,000 customers and their millions of employees worldwide. Founded in 2003, the company’s next-generation cloud-based security, archiving and continuity services  protect email and deliver comprehensive email risk management in a single, fully integrated subscription service.

Mimecast reduces email risk and the complexity and cost of managing the array of point solutions traditionally used to protect email and its data.

For customers that have migrated to cloud services like Microsoft Office 365TM, Mimecast mitigates single vendor exposure by strengthening security coverage, combating downtime and improving archiving.

Mimecast Email Security
 protects against ransomware, malware, spam, advanced phishing and other emerging attacks, while preventing data leaks. Protected health information can be stopped before it leaves the organization or shared securely.

Mimecast Enterprise Information Archiving unifies email, file and instant messaging data to support e-discovery and give employees fast access to their personal archives via PC, Mac and mobile apps.
