Healthcare Phishing Statistics: 2019 HIMSS Survey Results
In the healthcare industry, phishing is the initial point of compromise in most significant security incidents, according to a recent report from the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS). And yet, 18% of healthcare organizations fail to conduct phishing tests, a finding HIMSS describes as “incredible.” The 2019 HIMSS Cybersecurity Survey contains a wealth of phishing statistics, including click rates on simulated attacks across different industry segments. The report analyzes responses from 166 infosec professionals at hospitals, vendors, non-acute facilities and other organizations. Healthcare’s No. 1 Threat Vector. In the survey, 74% of respondents said they experienced a significant security incident in 2018—numbers comparable to the previous year’s survey. The most common threat actors were “online scam artists” (28.6%) who used tactics like phishing, spear phishing and business email compromise (BEC).
