Summary
A recent report by SecurityScorecard revealed that in 2023, healthcare organizations were disproportionately affected by third-party data breaches, accounting for 35% of such incidents. Despite having an average security score of 88, the study highlighted persistent vulnerabilities in application security and endpoint security within the sector. The research emphasized the critical need for healthcare organizations to monitor their extensive third-party relationships and mitigate risks associated with vulnerable software, vendors, and outsourced functions. Recommendations include educating patients about third-party data interactions and addressing single points of failure in the healthcare supply chain to prevent systemic disruptions.
