In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, healthcare providers have become a major target for cybercriminals looking for steal valuable private patient data; particularly through the use of email threats such as phishing and ransomware. Healthcare providers need to stay protected by using a fully-featured business email security solution. These will use inbound filtering to protect against malicious emails and attachments - protection inside the email inbox defends against data loss and account takeover attacks.
Why Healthcare Providers Need Email Security
Hospitals now account for over 30% of all large data breaches, and more than 2,100 healthcare related data breaches have been reported in the US alone since 2009. In total, breaches have cost healthcare companies over $6 trillion USD. Many data breaches begin with a malicious email; be that a phishing email, or an email containing ransomware or malware. For this reason, is it critical that healthcare organizations have strong email protection in place to protect their patients and their patients data against malicious cybercriminals.
How Healthcare Can Providers Protect Emails
It can be a major challenge for healthcare providers to get the right email protection to secure their patients and partners against email threats. Legacy email solutions may not provide strong protection against modern threats like phishing and ransomware - while enterprise solutions can be expensive and difficult to manage.
