With the festive season comes many types of dangers, some more expected than others. In healthcare, holidays always mean an uptick in ER visits, but fewer healthcare providers might be thinking about their cyber security during the holidays. With less predictable staffing, shorter hours, and more people reaching out for help, healthcare cybersecurity can sometimes take a backseat. Here’s your reminder to keep your cybersecurity plans and protections in place, and to do your updates before holiday weekends.
Stay warm and stay healthy this and every season, from your friends at Idenhaus.
