Pagers are easily hacked. During a four month period in 2015 (1), over 2 million unencrypted pager records were transmitted from a hospital or medical facility. This level of observation can easily lead to the theft of patient information. Our newest white paper details how:
- Healthcare information and patient data are more valuable than credit card information to hackers
- A $20 dongle can be used to hack sensitive pager communications
- HIPAA violations resulting from hacked data can result in fines of over $1M.
Alternatively, when doctors and hospitals use secure communication tools to exchange patient information, they can focus on providing great healthcare rather than on the security of their messaging.
