Cybersecurity pros share countermeasures for protecting against insider threats

Insider security threats are becoming increasingly common in the healthcare industry, with 60% of data breaches involving insiders, according to a recent report by Verizon. These threats can be both malicious and accidental, with employees or contractors accessing sensitive information either with harmful intent or due to human error or ignorance. Healthcare organizations can protect themselves by implementing administrative countermeasures, such as continuous education and training, and technical countermeasures, such as disabling hyperlinks and implementing security software. Monitoring user activity and implementing insider threat programs are also recommended to mitigate risk.
