Cyber attacks have become more frequent. This is on account of ineffective & inadequate IT security from healthcare organizations & hospitals. These attacks help steal billing information and medical records through phishing & spam mails. Medical organizations are vulnerable to such attacks owing to insecure networks, employee negligence, and lack of security identification.
This can be witnessed from the recent attack on Anthem, Inc., wherein 80 million patient health records (PHRs) got leaked on the World Wide Web. The healthcare cyber security market is anticipated to attain around USD 10.8 billion by 2022. It was valued at USD 5.5 billion in 2014. Market growth factors comprise cyber attacks, electronic-PHRs hackings, and IP (internet protocol) thefts.
