WEDI, the Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange, has issued a new white paper exploring some of the common cybersecurity vulnerabilities that are exploited by threat adversaries to gain access to healthcare networks and patient and health plan members’ protected health information.

The white paper – The Rampant Growth of Cybercrime in Healthcare – is a follow up to a primer released in 2015 that explored the anatomy of a cyberattack.

WEDI points out the seriousness of the threat faced by the healthcare industry. Cyberattacks are costing the healthcare industry around $6.2 billion each year, with the average cost of a healthcare data breach around $2.2 million.
