Given the sensitivity of their data, healthcare organizations are prime targets for malicious actors actively exploiting SaaS-related vulnerabilities. Unlike most other industries, however, the impacts of these breaches can be deadly.
In the U.S. alone:

  1. 800+ healthcare industry breaches in the past 24 months (HHS, 2024)
  2. $11M average cost of a healthcare breach in 2023 (IBM, 2023)
  3. 24% of attacked hospitals note a rise in mortality rates following a cyber-attack (Ponemon Institute, 2022)

In this whitepaper, we’ll explore the four pillars of healthcare-specific challenges in SaaS security and how adopting proactive technology solutions like SaaS Security Posture Management can help teams contend with these responsibilities at scale.
