From 2018 to 2023, healthcare data breaches have increased by 93 percent. And ransomware attacks have grown by 278 percent over the same period. Healthcare organizations can’t afford to let preventable breaches slip by. Globally, the average cost of a healthcare data breach has reached $10.93 million.

The situation for healthcare organizations may seem bleak. But there is hope. Focus on layering your security posture to focus on threat prevention, protection, and recovery.

Check out three healthcare organizations that are strengthening their cyber resilience with layered security tools.

1. Memorial Hermann balances user experience with encryption

Email encryption keeps sensitive medical data safe and organizations compliant. Unfortunately, providers will skip it if the encryption tool is difficult to use. Memorial Hermann ran into this exact issue.

Juggling compliance requirements with productivity needs, the organization worried about the user experience for email encryption. Webroot™ Email Encryption powered by Zix™ provides the solution. Nearly 75 percent of Memorial Hermann’s encrypted emails go to customers who share Webroot. Now more than 1,750 outside organizations can access encrypted email right from their inbox, with no extra steps or passwords.

2. Allergy, Asthma and Sinus Center safeguards email

The center needed to protect electronic medical records (EMR). But its old software solution required technical oversight that was difficult to manage.

Webroot™ Email Threat Protection by OpenText™ gives the healthcare organization an easy way to keep EMR secure. OpenText’s in-house research team is continually monitoring new and emerging threats to ensure the center’s threat protection is always up to date. With high-quality protection and a low-maintenance design, the IT team can focus on other projects. When patient data is at stake, the center knows it can trust Webroot.
