Threat actors are very sophisticated these days, requiring CISOs to match their “elegance” in devising countermeasures, according to Ryan Witt, managing director of healthcare at Proofpoint. In this episode of healthsystemCIO’s Partner Perspective Interview Series, Anthony Guerra, founder and editor-in-chief, talks with Witt about how identity is the new perimeter, and emails are still one of the key ways attacks will come. That’s why you need to know what threat actors are after. They want to monetize healthcare data, and particular institutions and certain people are of more interest than others. Research units and fundraising departments are major targets, as are the people who work in these areas. Witt says to step up security and layer it for these folks, because “healthcare data is still really, really valuable,” and very much part of a cyber-criminal’s business plan.
