Payment Security

How Can Healthcare Organizations Reduce PCI DSS Scope?

Healthcare organizations must be aware of vulnerabilities when accepting electronic payments and be proactive about protecting against them. Whether it is an individual employee who steals a patient’s payment card information or a large-scale cyber-attack, compromised data is costly. According to Ponemon Institute’s 2013 Global Cost of a Data Breach, Healthcare experiences the most costly data breaches at $233 per lost record; pharmaceuticals rank third at $207[1]. Couple that with damage to brand and reputation and it is easy to see how difficult it can be to recover from a breach.
