Hackers are targeting your practice — here's how to fight back

Video

The cyber threat against healthcare businesses is exploding, and here's what you can do about it, on this week's Medical Economics Pulse.

It’s time for physician practices to be on guard for hackers.

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a surge in cyber attacks on health care organizations, including a 37% increase in the United States, according to a new report.

And cyber threats do not discriminate between large hospitals and small practices. While big hacks get all the attention, independent practices are targeted because hackers perceive them as easier targets.

So what can physicians do to protect their practices? I sat down with Brian Linder, a cybersecurity expert with Check Point Software Technologies, to discuss how physicians can prepare their businesses to defend against these cyber threats.
