Length:  27 pages

Health care is often considered a lucrative business for those involved in waste, fraud and abuse. Today’s ever-accelerating technology changes make data related to health care, medical and financial issues even more attractive (and profitable) to cybercriminals who sell medical identities and siphon money from stolen financial records. Risks are exponentially increased because of organizations’ reliance on electronic systems for mission-critical functions. According to 61% of respondents to the SANS 2014 State of Cybersecurity in Health Care Organizations survey, medical/health record systems are considered the most at-risk information asset among the 224 health care-related organizations represented in the survey.
