The threat of cyber crime has grown exponentially as the digital revolution increases the role of technology in all aspects of life. Over the past few years, the healthcare industry has been one of the most affected by cyber crime, both in the number of cyber incidents and the impact that a loss of business functionality has on patients. In response to growing threats, new compliance parameters are being introduced from 2018.

This paper examines the cyber threats facing healthcare, including healthcare providers and the industry that supports the provision of care. It also considers the role of legislation in addressing the common causes of a breach and how useful compliance practices are in addressing threats.
