Health Sector under attack all over the world

Hi All

 

Does cybersecurity pay for itself?  Or shall we continue to bury ones head in sand, whilst attaching a breathing tube to stay alive, in the hope everything eventually goes away?

Re: Health Sector under attack all over the world

 

One issue that I believe all industries face is the mentality that it can't happen here.  Even when they see others in their line of business being hit.  In all too many organizations, security is looked at like insurance and is typically a direct overhead, and usually one of the first budget items to be cut. Unfortunate but true.

 

This fact is proven when we see some of the latest breaches where budgets are about 5 to 10 percent of what they should be.

 

I do think when done right cybersecurity does work and pays off.

 

Just my thoughts
