While healthcare institutions have been the target of ransomware and phishing attacks for years, cybercriminals have taken their malicious profession to a new level during the pandemic. With more employees carrying their company-issued computers home to work, the bad guys have even more opportunity to wreak havoc on your staff, your organization, and ultimately, your patients.
How do the good guys – you – stay ahead of their evil game? Training your employees to be hyperaware is a great step in the right direction. Employees, after all, are the biggest security risk. It’s no secret that hackers thrive on sending emails that appear to be from legitimate entities enticing employees to simply click a link. You know what happens next: they end up downloading malware.
It’s one thing to put safeguards in place on hard-wired computers within your organization, but what of all those smartphones, tablets, and laptops being used by your employees in their homes, cars, and hotel rooms?
