5 ways smaller healthcare organizations can bolster security

Health Data Management | 06/28/2018

The mergers and acquisition market is heating up in healthcare, both in the number and size of deals. As of late September 2017, there had been at least 561 hospital mergers since 2010, and four of the biggest last year involved entities with revenue of more than $1 billion. As the healthcare landscape continues to transform, M&A is likely to become a common occurrence and a ubiquitous strategy for smaller organizations.

Why Investors (and You) Need to Care About Cybersecurity

StartupNation | 06/27/2018

It makes sense that startups tend to underestimate cybersecurity. After all, they are small targets with limited amounts of data to steal. Many entrepreneurs believe that they are not even on hackers’ radar. That attitude is understandable, but unfortunately, it’s also inaccurate.

Protecting patients and providers from rising rates of healthcare fraud

Becker's Hospital Review | 06/27/2018

Cybercriminals are overcoming their ethical aversions to targeting healthcare and instead are making the industry their primary target — largely because it’s a massive repository of protected health information or personally identifiable information.

Kick suspicious email attachments to the sandbox

ITProPortal | 05/22/2018

readwrite | 04/20/2018

Implementing multiple layers of security is the common thread for today’s data security strategies. The layered approach has worked in some cases.

Federal Times | 03/28/2018

As of Jan. 15, all government agency domains are required to have Sender Policy Framework (SPF) and Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting and Conformance (DMARC) records in place, according to an October 2017 order issued by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security — a major step in governmentwide cybersecurity.

What the SEC Has Signaled to Public Companies About Cybersecurity

Innovation Enterprise | 03/23/2018

Historically, cyberattack consequences have ranged from reputation damage to strained partner relationships to heightened investments in IT and security. Increasingly, however, companies must also consider legal and regulatory consequences.

How to Weed the Bad Links Out of Your Inboxes

Security Today | 03/12/2018

While malicious links are not a new cyberthreat, this tactic remains a pervasive and effective hacking technique. For instance, with the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities recently threatening billions of computers, many people, urgent to find information and solutions, clicked a link that arrived unsolicited in their inboxes, purportedly from the German Federal Office for Information Security.
