About this talk

Cyberattacks against healthcare jumped 42% in 2020 and another 35% in 2021. Successful cyberattacks disrupt healthcare operations, delay access to clinical services, and lead to significant economic loss. Stolen patient records can be used to commit fraud and identity theft, disrupting patients’ personal lives. Medical information is an attractive target because it has high economic value on the black market. If you are interested in protecting patients and the healthcare organizations that serve them from cybercriminals, join WiCyS Strategic Partner, Optum, to learn about the career opportunities in healthcare cybersecurity.
