Key findings

Cybersecurity is a business imperative and healthcare organizations should adopt an enterprise-wide risk management approach to ensure business continuity and protect the safety, health, and privacy of patients.

Cyber risk is everywhere and organizations need to thoroughly assess their risks and vulnerabilities before they can appropriately prioritize and allocate resources.

Education and communication are key tools to combat cyber threats. Everyone who has contact with the organization’s information systems must be informed of cyber best practices and how they can help prevent cyber attacks.

Having a solid data governance foundation will support cybersecurity by helping organizations understand where data originates, its use, who has access, and for what purpose.
