Attackers have healthcare entities in their crosshairs, and their favorite targets are easily compromised credentials. Tracy Hulver of Synchronoss Technologies offers new ideas for how security leaders can reduce risk and protect sensitive data by better securing identities.

"But in other ways healthcare is different because people's privacy is at the heart of healthcare information, so not only is there a financial component and motivator ... but also there's a strong privacy element as well. If there's anything that I want to keep private as a citizen or as an individual, healthcare information is at the top of that [list]."
