Yes, Small Hospitals Can Have Big League Data Security

Clearwater, Fla. – January 23, 2019 – Healthcare IT security pros face the important and difficult task of keeping patients’ sensitive data secure. This type of data is a prime target for cybercriminals, since health records contain more personal data points than, say, credit card data and cannot just be reissued if a breach occurs.

But for community or smaller regional hospitals, it is often challenging for IT teams to garner the financial backing and support from executives that they need to comply with regulations and keep patient data safe.
