BREACHED: a costly threat to healthcare

Did you know that the healthcare industry gets hacked three times more than the financial industry?

Three Times More!


Your personal information is a very precious resource for cybercriminals, and our medical information is considered the most valuable of all. For this reason, the Healthcare industry is the #1 target for cybercriminals. In 2019 more patient records were breached than the previous six years combined (2019 Healthcare Data Breach Support), and this was before the massive increase in telehealth during the COVID-19 pandemic. With the expansion in telehealth, ID-ing the patient digitally is much more significant.

It's estimated that the healthcare industry will spend a total of $125 Billion on cybersecurity between 2020 and 2025!

And the industry isn't the only one noticing. The 2021 Consumer Healthcare Cybersecurity Threat Index found that 27 percent of patients would switch providers if their healthcare provider fell victim to a cyberattack.

Protect your patients and protect your reputation. When e-health records are concerned, ID security should be paramount. Guarding your systems with PINs and Passwords, even with Two Factor Authentication (2FA), is not enough. The healthcare industry needs to be proactive in cybersecurity and implement a zero-trust security platform to mitigate their threats effectively. Luckily the biometric ID technology is already in use in leading enterprise sectors.


With a biometric, you analyze who a user is, not what they know.

But how secure are biometrics & aren't they difficult and expensive to integrate?

Fingerprints & Facial biometrics are readily accessible but are simple to fake and sometimes require physical contact. Iris and vascular scanners are secure but require very specialized & costly equipment. That leaves voice and Voice biometric technology tops Forbes' list of the most reliable authentication technologies regarding strength and accuracy.

INDUSTRY USE CASES FOR VOICE BIOMETRICS

  • Patient ID

  • Physical Access (sensitive areas and substances)

  • Patient Record Digital Access and Security

  • Telehealth portal access

  • Fast, Touchless Check-in for Patients & Visitors

BENEFITS OF VOICE BIOMETRICS

  • Improved Patient UX

  • The ability for the patient to control the release of their records - what & who, with minimal security risk, ensuring that both Patient & Dr access is secure.

  • No more PINs, Pswrds, or KYC

  • Using voice as a single sign-on

V2verify offers a voice biometric solution that can definitively identify and authenticate anyone needing patient information access with just 2-seconds of speech, removing the need for PINs & passwords.
