Cybercriminals continue to target the healthcare industry with obtaining credentials being the primary motivation for most threat actors. Stolen credentials offer a multitude of attack vectors for cybercriminals, but not all credentials are created equally. At least not in the eyes of would-be cybercriminals. Instead, threat actors target specific job functions or departments where healthcare staff work in vulnerable ways or have access to key clinical or financial systems.

Join Ryan Witt, Proofpoint Resident CISO, Healthcare, as he discusses who is most targeted in healthcare and the type of threats most prevalent in the industry.

In this 30-minute briefing, you will learn about:
