Healthcare gets a 'D' on cybersecurity report card
Healthcare security professionals are less confident in their ability to assess security risk than in the past. That’s part of the reason network security firm Tenable gave the industry an overall “D” grade on its global cybersecurity report card. On top of that credit reporting company Experian has warned of new, more sophisticated data breaches in 2017 as healthcare remains the most targeted sector among cybercriminals. Experian sees criminal interest expanding to other sectors, such as hospitals and physicians.
