Health care security threats that compromise the confidentiality, integrity and availability of critical data can force hospitals to halt operations.
The idea of employing basic endpoint hygiene to keep your data safe seems like a no-brainer. So why was the WannaCry ransomware attack so damaging?
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services established guidelines to improve the state of health care cybersecurity throughout the sector.

Compliance should be viewed as a framework to facilitate security, not a magic wand to make threats and vulnerabilities disappear.
