ENFORCE Managed Network Security for Medical Practices
Private practices are more vulnerable to cyber threats because most do not have real security measures in place.
Could Your Practice Survive Data Loss or Cyber Crime?
If you don’t have proactive security measures in place to protect your IT network, it’s only a matter of time before it will be attacked. IBM estimates that there are 91 million security events per year, of which 48% are in the healthcare industry.
Enforce Managed Security protects your entire network against any type of threat, attack, shutdown or outage — saving you downtime, loss of revenue, and even lawsuits.

Threats to Your Practice from Your Own Technology
Most medical practices think nothing will happen to their network.
Until it does.
These are common threats to your practice that happen every day that can cost tens of thousands of dollars to overcome.
System & Cyber Threats
- System Outage
- Lost Productivity
- Viruses and Spyware
- Email Interception
Data Theft or Deletion
- Patient records
- Payroll info
- Patient accounts
- Confidential email
- Insurance information
- Clinical trials data
Top Target: Billing & Insurance Data
More Valuable to Hackers than Credit Card Data
Your patients’ medical information is worth more than 10-times their credit card number on the black market, according to Reuters. Criminals can use the data – such as their name, birth date, policy number, and billing information – for insurance fraud and other scams. This is one reason why billing and insurance information is the most-breached type of data at BAs.
Patient Data Successfully Targeted
How Critical is Your Data?
- 32 million medical records have been breached in the US since 2009
- Medical records are more detailed than credit records, and contain valuable info for identity thieves
- Practices can be heavily fined and held liable for security breaches
- HIPAA requires it
