Over recent months, the healthcare sector has faced escalating cybersecurity challenges, as highlighted by CISA’s Advisory. The surge in large-scale data breaches in November, totaling 28 incidents affecting over 10,000 records, underscores the critical need for enhanced cybersecurity measures. Two of these breaches, ranking among the top ten of all time, targeted business associates of HIPAA-covered entities.
