PwC’s latest Global State of Information Security Survey (GSISS) 2015 reveals that the healthcare industry is now a major cyber security target.

The number of detected incidents in healthcare has increased by 60% – almost double the amount reported by other industries.

The rise in healthcare cyber security attacks is being driven by rapidly changing technology, including the proliferation of electronic health records. Why is our healthcare information so valuable to strangers and what can the healthcare industry do to protect itself?

Thomas Sonderegger, Partner in PwC Australia’s cyber business, and Nikhil de Silva, lead Partner for digital health at PwC Australia, explore the issues.
