Preventing and Responding to Cyberthreats
Cybersecurity vulnerabilities and intrusions pose risks for every hospital and health system, as well as its reputation. Your organization can prepare and manage such risks by viewing cybersecurity not as a novel issue but rather by making it part of your existing governance, risk management and business continuity framework. You’ll also want to ensure that the approach you adopt remains flexible and resilient to address threats that are likely to be constantly evolving and multi-pronged.
