Recent research reveals that 79% of organizations have experienced an identity-related security breach in the last two years, and 99% believe their identity-related breaches were preventable.

Our next focus based on the recent campaign from HHS' 405(d) Task Group is Loss or Theft of Equipment or Data. The information on these flyers we are sharing with you was pulled directly from the Health Industry Cybersecurity Practices: Managing Threats and Protecting Patients (HICP) publication.
As we mentioned in our first blog post of this series, HHS' 405(d) Task Group, with which Fulcrum Group is associated, has detailed and created flyers for 5 Top Cybersecurity Threats and we're sharing them with you throughout this month, along with great tips on how to mitigate! Although these particular tips and flyers are geared around a healthcare environment, the recommendations and security strategies mentioned fall under standard cybersecurity best practices for any organization.
