Auto-related theft is on the rise. In Denver alone, car thefts have doubled over the last two years and auto-related theft now accounts for nearly half of all crime statistics in the area. Auto-related theft comprises everything from theft of entire vehicles to vehicle parts and even items left inside.
The healthcare industry is understandably fixated on putting strong cybersecurity policies into place. After all, over 100 data breaches were recorded between January and the end of April this year, putting patient data and patient lives at risk. Most recently, the second largest hospital chain, CommonSpirit Health was recently hit with an unprecedented attack that caused widespread system outages that endangered patient lives.
Healthcare workers are often underserved and undervalued. And now they are even at higher risk for workplace violence than the average worker across other industries. Studies show that if you are a healthcare worker, you are up to five times more likely to be a victim of assault than people in any other job. Some recent surveys even showed that almost 70% of nurses in emergency rooms have been kicked or hit while doing their jobs.
