John Riggi, AHA’s national advisor for cybersecurity and risk, said, “Both of these guides contain specific recommendations to help mitigate the risk of various forms of cyberattack, from the simple to the complex, including high-impact ransomware attacks that disrupt care delivery. The information in these guides is a compilation of government threat intelligence, private-sector incident response findings and information provided by victim organizations. The HC3 trends report predicts that ransomware and data breaches will continue to plague the health care sector in 2023. The good news is that attention to cybersecurity basics such as email security, security of remote access technologies, patching and robust third-party risk management programs will go a long way in reducing the risk of cyberattacks in 2023 and beyond.”
