The State of Email Security 2018 Report
The latest threats, confidence killers and bad behaviors—and a cyber resilience strategy to fix them
Healthcare faces unique cyber resilience challenges. The industry is targeted for the massive amounts of medical and personal information. And busy medical professionals frequently fall victim to phishing attacks or inadvertently commit careless errors that can lead to a breach.
Healthcare organizations around the world face the challenge of coordinating care between multiple parties while simultaneously protecting the personal health information of patients. And because the sale of medical records is so lucrative, healthcare is an attractive target for attackers.
Ransomware in healthcare is a top threat. By impeding critical patient care, attackers know there is a strong incentive for organizations to pay the ransom. But data breaches are caused by malicious or careless insiders as well – healthcare is the only industry whose employees are the predominant cause of breaches. Without data leak prevention measures in place, your organization may expose patient data and risk substantial fines.

Prevent email-borne ransomware infections and other advanced attacks.
Stop malicious URLs and attachments.
