The healthcare industry, valued at $3 trillion, has become an increasingly valuable target for cyber thieves. If healthcare organizations want to reduce their risk of cyber-attack, they have to re-evaluate their views on security.

Understanding the hacker mindset will enable healthcare stakeholders to determine where to invest resources to safeguard data now and in the future.
