Cyber Threats keep Hospital CEOs Awake at Night

Cyber threats of data breach, malware and fraudulent activities are cross-cutting. Practically, no business of any type can claim to be on a safe list. Nevertheless, organizations that handle or process personal data are exclusive targets of cyber crime. In a recent interview with Information Security Media Group, Fernando Martinez, Senior Vice President and Chief Digital Officer of the Texas Hospital Association says that the top challenge that keep the hospital and System CEOs “awake at night is cyber security.”

Martinez said that with ever evolving cyber threat landscape paired with lack of awareness on part of end user and ill-preparation on part of organization lets the threat perpetrator infiltrate.

As suggested by Martinez a multi layered security architecture including encryption, two-factor authentication, anti-malware and intrusion prevention systems is needed to identify, contain and recover from any such nefarious data breach attempt.
