Healthcare cybersecurity has become a growing concern, as health data is among the most targeted by cybercriminals. It is reported that the data breaches and phishing cost nearly $6 billion to the healthcare industry every year. The demand for the healthcare cybersecurity market has increased due to the increasing number of data breaches and cyberattacks in recent years.
Cyber Chasse leads the healthcare industry in best practices by offering advanced cybersecurity solutions to healthcare providers in the US. Anil Kumar Jayaprakash, Director of Cyber Chasse says, “The Majority of cyber attacks can take place through the exploitation of vulnerabilities in VPN systems. It is essential to keep the software updated and patch vulnerabilities in the VPN systems with the best practices”.
As per a report, the healthcare cybersecurity market will exceed $20 billion by 2025. The increasing number of cyber-attacks in hospitals, pharmaceutical, and other healthcare organizations is likely to propel the entire industry in the coming years. Hackers are introducing unique malware, as a result of which hospitals are facing difficulties in securing important information.
