49% of small medical practices lack a cyberattack response plan
A Software Advice survey revealed how cyberattacks can negatively impact healthcare providers by threatening core functions and patient privacy.
According to findings, 22% of small practices and 45% of large practices have experienced a ransomware attack at some point, with numbers rising in the past three years.
What makes small practices more vulnerable is the lack of training and inadequate security technology. Also, what they often lack is a formal cybersecurity response plan.
