2015 HIMSS Cybersecurity Survey Results

August 3, 2015 CynergisTek, Inc.

HIMSS recently released the results of their 2015 Cybersecurity Survey, which surveyed healthcare leaders across the country on key topics related to their awareness and readiness for cyber attacks.

You can view or download the full infographic below, but here are a few points we wanted to highlight:

  • Two-thirds of respondents reported that their organization had recently experienced a “significant” cyber event.
  • A large majority of respondents lack confidence in their organization’s ability to defend against zero-day attacks, with only 17% expressing confidence.
  • Nearly 70% of respondents rated phishing attacks as their top future threat of concern.
