Nearly one in five employees in the healthcare field said they're willing to sell confidential data like login credentials to unauthorized parties, a new survey from Accenture claims. Nearly one quarter of the survey's respondents said they know someone in their organization who has sold their credentials or access to an unauthorized outsider. Microsoft is trying again to tackle the healthcare market with a concerted strategy involving artificial intelligence, productivity tools, and partnerships. "Employees have a key role in the healthcare industry's battle with cyber criminals," John Schoew, leader of Accenture's Health & Public Service Security practice in North America, said. "As payers and providers invest in digital to transform productivity, cut costs and improve quality, they need a multi-pronged approach to data security that involves consistent and relevant training, multiple security techniques to protect data and continuous monitoring for anomalous behavior."
