Ransomware attacks on hospitals spiked during the pandemic, causing massive disruption to healthcare organizations at a time when they were strained by unprecedented patient demands. Cyberattacks threaten to compromise patient care and private data, yet cybersecurity remains under-prioritized by many hospitals and clinics.
Why are healthcare organizations such vulnerable targets, and how can they increase their cyber-readiness?
Experts in healthcare cybersecurity will provide an overview of the specific cyber challenges facing hospitals today, why hospitals are such attractive targets for cybercriminals, and what measures will be needed to overcome institutional barriers and develop hospital cyber programs that are more resilient against aggressive cyberattacks.
