We're at War: Cyberattacks a Wake-Up Call for the Healthcare Sector

We're at War: Cyberattacks a Wake-Up Call for the Healthcare Sector

The hack of health insurer Anthem exposes data on 80 million Americans. A breach of an electronic health records vendor affects dozens of clinics. A California hospital pays a ransom to get data decrypted by hackers. These and other headline-grabbing breaches are getting the attention of CEOs and boards of directors. And these senior leaders are coming to an important conclusion: In the current threat environment, healthcare organizations must adopt a "wartime" mindset against their sophisticated, persistent attackers. An organization with a wartime mindset is focused on just one thing: Stop the enemy.
