IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Netwrix, a cybersecurity vendor that makes data security easy, today announced healthcare market findings from its 2020 Cyber Threats Report. Netwrix conducted this online survey in June 2020 to understand how the pandemic and ensuing work-from-home initiatives changed the IT risk landscape.

Pre-pandemic, they were mostly concerned about employees accidently sharing sensitive data (88%) and rogue admins (80%); today they are worried about phishing (87%), admin mistakes (71%) and data theft by employees (71%).
