Human error continues to dominate healthcare security breaches
For healthcare organizations to deliver on the trust placed in them, keeping sensitive data secure and protecting users from phishing attacks are critical. But the frenetic pace and increasingly remote nature of work in healthcare have made the human layer vulnerable.
Whether it’s accidentally clicking on phishing links, sending sensitive data to the wrong person, or paying invoices on spoofed vendor emails, humans are involved in the vast majority of healthcare data breaches.
These breaches have also begun to go after the lower-hanging fruit of personal data (66%) rather than medical data (55%) according to the Verizon 2021 DBIR.
Healthcare's Unique Email Security Challenges
With rising threat volumes and ever present compliance requirements, healthcare organizations deal with unique email security challenges.
- Lean IT and Security Teams
Healthcare security teams have a lot on their plate and often lack the time and resources to triage and respond to high-volume email threats.
- Device and Email Sprawl
Doctors and staff can have email accounts with multiple hospitals and often access these accounts remotely on mobile devices - making it tougher to spot targeted attacks
- Compliance Mandates
Using best-in-class inbound and outbound email security controls is a key part of ensuring compliance with HIPAA and other regulations.
- Ransomware Risk
Cybercriminals know that impedeng patient care is a strong incentive for paying ransoms, and thus target critical healthcare services with ransomware and extortion attacks.
How Armorblox Secures the Human Layer of Healthcare
Armorblox helps healthcare organizations communicate more securely over email using the power of Natural Language Understanding (NLU). Armorblox connects over APIs to understand the content and context of communications and secures the human layer from compromise.
Healthcare organizations use Armorblox to stop BEC and targeted email attacks, ensure compliance by protecting sensitive data, and reduce phishing response times for user-reported threats.
Security powered by understanding
Stop Targeted Email Attacks
Armorblox looks at thousands of signals to understand the context of email communications and stop email attacks that get past Microsoft, Google, and SEG security controls.
Stop scammers from spoofing trusted entities to steal money and data.
Identify emails where attackers claim to hold sensitive information in exchange for payments from victims.
Detect compromised third-party vendor accounts being used to initiate fraudulent transactions.
Account Takeover Protection
Detect Email Account Compromise
Armoblox stops targeted email account takeover attacks that frequently get past legacy security controls. We study communication baselines to stop cybercriminals from compromising faculty and student email accounts to launch attacks and exfiltrate sensitive data.
Stop emails that phish for account credentials, such as emails linking to fake medical portals or Office 365 / Google login pages.
Detect unusual behavioral signals such as anonymous logins, impossible travel, and sequences of strong authentication failures.
Prevent data exfiltration by identifying unusual mail forwarding rules.
Keep Sensitive Data Out of the Wrong Hands
Simplify compliance by protecting against accidental or malicious disclosure of sensitive data over email. Armorblox language models detect PII, PCI, and passwords shared with unauthorized recipients, giving you an accurate snapshot of your organization’s data exposure risk.
Protect Sensitive Data
Detect when unencrypted passwords, SSNs, bank account details, and other sensitive information is shared with external parties.
DLP Within Context
Increase DLP accuracy with natural language understanding and other advanced techniques that identify sensitive data within email context.
Uncover communication insights for targeted security interventions, e.g., most noncompliant individuals, DLP violations by department.
Eliminate Email Security Busywork
Armorblox has pre-built detection policies and automatable response actions. Our platform does the heavy lifting so your team has more time to investigate and hunt for threats.
Threat Detection Categories
Avoid manual policy creation with pre-built threat detection and DLP categories (e.g. payroll fraud, social engineering, SSN).
Preconfigured Policy Actions
Use preconfigured policy actions that automatically label, quarantine, or delete suspicious emails.
Educate users with threat information within the context of their daily email workflows.
Start Monitoring Email Threats in Minutes
Armorblox connects over APIs and can be deployed in minutes within your email environment. Give your security team time back in their day to focus on more proactive tasks.
