Hackers never sleep. According to the Identity Theft Resource Center (ITRC), data breaches increased by 40 percent last year and the healthcare and business industries were hit the hardest. Personally Identifiable Information (PII), including patient data and healthcare records, present an alluring target to hackers.
Keeping sensitive data secure requires constant surveillance and testing. In 2015, cyber-attacks on hospitals surged by over 600 percent. In its Data Breach Industry Forecast for 2017, Experian predicts healthcare organizations will become the most targeted sector, with new and sophisticated attacks expected to test even the most robust security measures.
As Jay Shobe, vice president, technology, at Yardi, explains, “Any centralized database is at risk of a breach. Because the cyber security continually evolves, it’s important to maintain constant network security that’s able to evolve as the threat evolves.”
Yardi Takes Security Seriously
For healthcare providers and senior living communities, advances in software and data collection are helping keep costs, increasing operational efficiency and improving resident care. Unfortunately, advances in cloud-based productivity and convenience open the door to vulnerability.
In Yardi’s latest whitepaper, Senior Living Data Security, senior living providers will get the latest information on the most common vulnerabilities in senior living and discover how to protect their organization’s sensitive data with the industry’s most trusted cloud provider.
Senior Living Data Security provides insight on the evolution and forecasts how data breaches will dominate the healthcare industry for years to come.
