Cybercriminals often target the healthcare industry, and it’s not surprising why. Patient health information (PHI) contains a lot of valuable data about individuals. That’s why in the black market, PHI fetches more money than credit card data.
No wonder criminals continue to find ways to steal PHI. A recent survey of 1,758 US and Canadian healthcare employees revealed 27% of healthcare organizations have experienced at least one ransomware attack in the past five years, while 33% have experienced multiple ransomware attacks.
