Protect sensitive information with healthcare cybersecurity

The Challenge

Healthcare organizations around the world face the challenge of coordinating care between multiple parties while simultaneously protecting the personal health information of patients. And because the sale of medical records is so lucrative, healthcare is an attractive target for attackers.

Ransomware in healthcare is a top threat, accounting for 72% of all malware. By impeding critical patient care, attackers know there is a strong incentive for organizations to pay the ransom. But data breaches can be caused by malicious or careless insiders as well – healthcare is the only industry whose employees are the predominant cause of breaches. Without data leak prevention measures in place, your organization may expose patient data and risk substantial fines.

Mimecast Solution

Mimecast cyber security and resilience solutions prevent external attacks and internal threats from becoming damaging medical records and other data breaches. With advanced email security, Mimecast keeps ransomware and other threats like spear-phishing from damaging the organization. Advanced data leak prevention stops sensitive information at the gateway, and being shared with unauthorized colleagues. It gives employees important tools to share information securely by specifying restrictions and access controls. Full audit logs and reporting make it easy to demonstrate technology safeguards and respond quickly to audits.
