Enhancing cybersecurity

Better protect patient data and your organization’s reputation

Data can help save lives. Left under-protected, however, it can also harm your organization.

Healthcare providers handle massive amounts of highly sensitive information daily. What's more, many organizations rely on paper-based processes or legacy technology systems which can easily be compromised by hackers and thieves. AT&T Healthcare cybersecurity solutions helps defend your data and better protect your enterprise.

If you're unsure if your organization's data is at risk, you should assume the worst. Since 2010, the healthcare records of approximately 150 million Americans have been compromised.1 In August of 2016 alone, more than 87 million employee health records had been exposed or stolen.2

AT&T Healthcare cybersecurity solutions can help you contain risk, embrace change, and anticipate threats with HIPAA-compliant innovation. Our unparalleled visibility into the unique data patterns and rapidly evolving threat activity across our global network helps defend your patients' data, your organization's reputation, and ultimately your revenue.
