The healthcare industry increasingly relies on internet-connected devices, telemedicine and digital health records to improve patient care and organizational efficiency. However, these technologies have made the industry a major target for bad actors intending to take advantage of the COVID-19 pandemic and increased reliance on internet-connected devices. Citizens and hospitals alike have seen an increase in cyberattacks, such as phishing scams and data theft, and the urgency of the pandemic has only made the industry more vulnerable.

In honor of Cybersecurity Awareness Month, experts from industry and government will discuss the emerging threats facing the healthcare industry and consumers, and the steps we need to take to protect our nation’s healthcare and public health sector.
