In this new research report, RiskRecon teamed up with Cyentia Institute and
Health-ISAC to diagnose the digital risk factors facing healthcare providers
and share important results from this research to aid those managing
cyber risk in the healthcare sector.
Key findings include:
- – Healthcare boasts one of the highest average rates of severe security findings.
- – The rate of severe security findings in the smallest providers is 3x higher than that of the largest providers.
- – The industry average rate of severe security exposures in critical cloud-based assets is 10x that of assets hosted on-premises.

A note from Errol Weiss, CSO at H-ISAC
“In 2020, Health-ISAC members across healthcare delivery, big pharma, payers and medical device manufacturers saw increased cyber risks across their evolving and sometimes unfamiliar supply chains. Adjusting to the new operating environment presented by COVID-19 forced healthcare companies to rapidly innovate and adopt solutions like cloud technology that also added risk with an expanded digital footprint to new suppliers and partners with access to sensitive patient data. This report is an important read for any CISO or third-party risk practitioner to gain insights on measuring risk surface in the healthcare industry.”
