Healthcare providers are suffering from data breaches at an alarming rate. While these attacks can have serious financial impact on health organizations, the effects on patient lives can be devastating.
The levels of technological sophistication run the gamut in the healthcare industry, and in a pre-COVID-19 world, providers set their own pace.
