Cybersecurity is crucial for advisors in healthcare

Cybersecurity is crucial for healthcare facilities
Healthcare consultants are increasingly targeted by hackers as patient records provide hackers with a goldmine of information. That’s why cybersecurity is crucial for advisors in healthcare.
The management of healthcare consultancy firms is responsible for digital security. After all, patient data should never fall into the hands of hackers.

Health is at stake

Insufficient healthcare consulting firms have acted in recent years after the most vicious cyberattacks, such as WannaCry and NotPetya, compromised patient data. Cyberattacks endanger the safety of patients but also your team.

Hackers do whatever it takes to break-in

Take the systems in which patient records are stored. These digital systems are, of course, somewhat protected. Yet hackers manage to crack digital systems or shut down entire systems.

In healthcare, it is important to apply good cybersecurity to prevent your team from running off with pen and paper indefinitely. Writing data on an A4 sheet also entails the necessary risks.

The lack of progress in cybersecurity within the healthcare consultancy sector is alarming. Especially as the scale of cyber threats continues to increase.

Cybersecurity is crucial for advisors in healthcare

Patient records are essential in healthcare. Without these records, healthcare workers are hampered in their work, preventing patients from receiving the care they need. Access to life-saving medical supplies is also becoming less accessible. When patient data is up for grabs it can also cause social and psychological problems.

System security is not only compromised by hackers who carefully plan an attack. Your team can also contribute to the downfall of your healthcare consultancy. Often without realizing it.

After all, your team specializes in healthcare, not cybersecurity. The ignorance of healthcare professionals about cybersecurity is a weakness that criminals know how to exploit.

Hackers investigate communication

Criminals regularly thoroughly analyze e-mail traffic. Once they know who is in contact with whom, they can finally strike.

Impersonating a specific employee allows criminals to contact whomever they want, giving a criminal room to attack.

One click has an immense impact

It often starts with an unreliable e-mail. The criminal puts together an e-mail that seems so reliable that it is almost indistinguishable from the real thing for your team.

If an e-mail contains a link or a file to download, it should raise all sorts of questions. For criminals, these links or files provide access to everything they need. One click can cause immense problems.

In addition, your team is busy caring for patients. There is often no time to thoroughly scan every e-mail, but this must be done. Carefully reading e-mails can prevent your healthcare consulting firm from operating without systems for days or weeks.

Healthcare consulting firms are an easy mark

Too little budget is allocated to cyber security within the healthcare sector. But think about the consequences of poor cybersecurity. That is worth a larger budget.

Criminals have free rein

In any case, criminals are happy with this fact. They are given free rein due to the poor security of the digital infrastructure and staff who do not know how to deal with cybersecurity. Without embarrassment, one criminal after another strikes at healthcare consulting firms of all sizes.

How does the free trial works?

Your free 14-day trial with Guardey is based on our Basic plan. In our basic plan, all the alarms will only be available for yourself or your own company, and you manage the alarms in-house. We don’t need any payment information to start your trial, and you can invite as many users as you want.

The majority of SMEs don’t have an in-house IT department or a team of cyber security specialists. Therefore we also offer Guardey co-managed and Guardey custom. In both plans, you are able to connect Guardey to a preferred Guardy IT partner or, of course, your own IT partner.

They can semi or fully manage the alarms and the health of your infrastructure so that you can focus on your business.

After your 14 days of the free trial, you can decide if you want to continue with a paid plan. Upgrading during your trial period means you stop your trial and upgrade to a paid plan. You need a verified payment method to upgrade.

How can I pay after the trial period?

We don’t ask for any payment information to start your trial.

If you want to upgrade during or after your free trial to a paid plan, you can use one of the below payment methods:

  1. Credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Maestro, PostePay, Cartes Bancaires)
  2. PayPal
  3. Direct Debit (iDeal SEPA)
Can I up- or downgrade to a different plan?

Yes you can! You can always upgrade immediately and costs are calculated pro-rata on your next invoice. A downgrade will be effective from your next payment period.
