Healthcare is the #2 most targeted industry for cyber attacks.

In the past 5 years, 21% of cyber insurance claims have been in the healthcare industry with incident costs as high as $71.6 million.

3 Types of Cyber Incidents Affecting Healthcare


The disruption of access to or use of computers and data. This often results in significant downtime and lack of access to critical monitoring equipment and patient records.


The loss of confidential data. Healthcare organizations have some of the most sensitive PHI (personal health information) and financial data on their patients. The number of breaches has doubled in the first half of this year compared to 2021. These have resulted in some embarrassing and costly incidents.

Third Party Breach

When an outside organization is breached with intention to gain access to the healthcare organization. This is happening more commonly in medical facilities as hackers are accessing networks through medical devices, equipment and contractors who are working on site

What Cyber Attack's Look Like in Healthcare

Lost Access to Patient Records

Ransomware affected one health network causing them to cancel surgeries, cancer treatments and more. When a medical office loses access to patient records, healthcare shuts down.

Leaked Credit Card Information

One Midwest dentist learned 6months later that his network had been breached, leaking credit card info for his customers. He did not have cyber insurance and the incident caused the practice to close.

Hacked Surveillance

Last year there was a breach at a surveillance company and hackers accessed 150 surveillance cameras on site at a variety of medical facilities including mental health centers.
