‘DO NO HARM’ Through Strong Information Security

A large U.S. teaching hospital came under cyberattack in 2019 after malicious hackers used email in an attempt to steal valuable intellectual property tied to three professors’ research. Their work had been publicized on social media and in a recent news article, which made them prime targets.

That email-borne attack was caught by cybersecurity technology before it could do any damage, but it underscores the danger from more advanced threats posed by social engineering targeting healthcare workers who believe they are communicating with trusted sources.

When these attacks are successful, providers, payers, and patients pay the price.
