As healthcare continues down its digital transformation journey, they’re presented with a new set of security vulnerabilities that are impactful on operations and patient safety. Adopting a defense-in-depth strategy enables healthcare organizations to adapt and thwart cyberattacks at different levels, limiting the amount of disruption.
