Why should you care about cyber security? The prevalence of malware is why.

|

75% of the healthcare industry has been infected with malware over the past year. The medical industry is the number one targeted industry for malware. Not only does the medical industry handle patient’s personal identifiable information, the large number of attacks could be attributed to the rise of the Internet of Things.

With more medical devices connected to a hospitals network the devices have now become vulnerable to attacks. What’s even scarier, if malware infects certain devices, it could possible lead to the death of a patient.
