Cyber crime is one of the biggest threats facing businesses today. The problem is rising so fast that it is hard to put accurate figures on it – estimates suggest it could reach $2 trillion by 2019, a threefold increase since 2015.
Medical and healthcare practices are particularly vulnerable to cyber attack, suffering more attacks than any other market sector. You may recall the high profile attack on the NHS in 2017.
At any time you are holding hundreds of patient records, maybe more, and these records are vulnerable to attack.
