Amazon Web Services presents Cybersecurity Awareness Month
It’s Cyber Awareness Month - Remote Work, Data Security, and the Impact on Canadian Hospitals

According to a June 2020 article in the CBC, 48% of all security breaches in Canada were in the healthcare industry. The 2021 Horizon Report also noted that 79% of the breaches in healthcare are providers. Earlier this year, a major health system in Toronto was hit, forcing the hospital to shut down more than 5,000 computers, several clinics and the emergency department had to function on ambulance redirection.
In addition to ensuring an "always on" for the life-critical services, hospitals must also protect their patients' health records and privacy. With the pandemic, not only were healthcare providers fighting a virus, a triage of infections, and revenue losses, they also had to ramp their networks to enable remote work. That exposed even more.
