May 2020 Cybercrime Update

For your Staff (Human error)

Cybercrime is up 400% during the COVID-19 crisis.  89% of healthcare providers have experienced a data breach in 2019-2020. 

Human error is most often to blame for patient information data loss due to sophisticated spear-phishing or spamming threats.  Unfortunately, with the increased attacks we now have firsthand experience with this issue also.  It is important to note that it is not as simple as a “bad” staff member.  It can happen in a flash to the best people who are truly dedicated to quality patient care but, may need additional training to recognize new threats. 

Apex cannot guarantee it will never happen to your organization; however, we can help you ensure that best practices and training are in place.

Apex offers:

  • Assistance with ongoing continuing cybersecurity education
  • Ongoing testing program with customized fake phishing emails
  • Securely storing data and reports so all data is not accessible by all staff (need to know basis)
  • Limiting PHI in mass reporting of data for analysis and problem-solving
  • Course work on cybersecurity, and the importance of HIPAA/GDPR, for continuing education of staff
  • Updating “whitelists” and flagging fake email addresses
  • Apex continually looks for new methods to keep patient data secure
