Security Threat Report

According to the latest Symantec Internet Security Threat Report, 36 percent of all data breaches in 2013 were in the healthcare sector. This was higher than in government (13 percent) and financial (6 percent) industries combined.

The report recommends that you:

  • Do not open attachments unless they are expected and come from a trusted source.
  • Think twice before running software downloaded from the internet.
  • Be suspicious of links, emails, even if the email comes from a trusted source.
  • Remember that any personal information you post on social networking sites could be used to target you in an attachment.
