Responding to a spike in cyber threats that exploit telework technologies during the COVID-19 pandemic, the American Medical Association (AMA) and the American Hospital Association (AHA) have teamed to provide physicians and hospitals with guidance on protecting a remote work environment from cyber criminals.
The two leading associations have created a joint cybersecurity resource, Working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic, offering actions to strengthen home or hospital -based computers, networks, and medical devices from the rise in COVID-19-themed security threats and attacks. The resource includes checklists, sources, tips and advice on strengthening protections to keep pace with deceptive cyberattacks that could disrupt patient care or threaten medical records and other data.
Just as keeping a balanced diet is important to your overall health, having a balanced cybersecurity approach is essential to protecting your patients and organization from cyber threats!
