The main goal of healthcare sector worldwide is to provide quality and efficient healthcare services to citizens. With the digitalization of healthcare information and adoption of eHealth among hospitals, healthcare sector must be protected from cyber-attacks even as the threat landscape continue to escalate. Hospitals are have fallen victims to cyber breaches due to sensitive patient’s data they possess.
