According to Verizon’s 2018 Data Breach Investigations Report, the health care industry ranks worst when it comes to preventing insider data breaches, HealthITSecurity reports. As the only sector reported to have more internal actors behind data breaches than external, errors were the leading type of cyber incident across health care, followed by malware, hacking and privilege misuse. The report also found that for the malware detected in health care, ransomware accounted for 85 percent. Executive Director of Security Professional Services Bryan Sartin said, “Ransomware remains a significant threat for companies of all sizes,” adding, “What is interesting to us is that businesses are still not investing in appropriate security strategies to combat ransomware, meaning they end up with no option but to pay the ransom — the cybercriminal is the only winner here.”
