A survey has found that a large portion of healthcare organisations in the UK experienced cyber-security incidents last year, which were mostly due to employees sharing data. According to new research, in the last 12 months, 67 percent of healthcare organisations in the UK suffered a cyber-security incident. The data was compiled by Clearswift, which surveyed senior business decision makers within healthcare organisations. The findings revealed that 48 percent of incidents occurred as a result of viruses or malware from third-party devices, such as Internet of Things (IoT) devices or USB sticks.
