Being cyber resilient in a rocky risk landscape

Healthcare is a major target for cybercriminals, and the attacks on hospitals and health systems only continue to increase. Yesterday’s strategies for protecting data and systems aren’t enough as the threats overwhelm IT and security staff across the industry. Effectively combatting ransomware and sophisticated cyberattacks will take a combination of technology and expertise to change the outcomes across healthcare organizations. In this podcast, Clearwater CEO, Steve Cagle, talks about the changes that are complicating the threat landscape, expanding the scope of security outside of HIPAA, and where healthcare leaders should allocate resources to create the most effective strategy for managing enterprise cyber risk.

In this podcast, we will discuss:

  • NIST has new guidance to help organizations comply with the HIPAA Security Rule, adding Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) as an additional safeguard to consider in response to the rise in cyberattacks.

  • According to, 36% of breaches reported in the first 6 months of 2022 involved a business associate and according to IBM’s Cost of Data Breach report, 45% of breaches in their data set were cloud-based. Organizations thinking about achieving cyber resiliency must account for whom they’re partnering with and how those technologies could impact their organizations if compromised.

  • Healthcare organizations must assess and address how best to counter growing threats and attacks. Doing this all internally requires they build out and staff security operations 24/7/365, hire and retain experienced security analysts, monitor all EDR alerts and determine which require a response.
