Irvine, CA – Identillect Technologies Corp. (TSX-V:ID | OTCQB: IDTLF | Frankfurt: 8ID) (the “Company” or “Identillect”) announces a joint effort campaign with HIPAATraining.com to educate and implement technologies which effectively combat the ransomware epidemic affecting businesses in the medical space. With healthcare businesses being targeted so heavily by ransomware, HIPAATraining.com customers are concerned about the very real cybersecurity dangers to their organizations. With this growing concern Identillect, in conjunction with Hipaatraining.com, is committed to bring the right solutions to combat this problem.
End-to-End email encryption is a fundamental element in securing data in transit and at rest. Outdated medical systems are woefully unprepared to deal with a new class of criminals willing to hold patients’ medical data, credit card numbers, and other personal information hostage barring a big payout stated in a Fortune article on Ransomware. The healthcare industry was the victim of 88% of all ransomware attacks in U.S. industries last year, detailed in an article by Ana Mulero of Healthcare Dive.
Todd Sexton, CEO of Identillect states, “The concern for protecting information in the medical space has never been more relevant. As cyber-attacks are reaching record highs we are expanding our program around awareness and security and believe this program with hipaatraining.com will allow us to secure many more clients in need.”
HIPAATraining.com’s CEO Abdul Yoosufani, states, “We selected Identillect Technologies as our exclusive provider for email security as cybersecurity is continually becoming a more relevant concern to our clients, as their needs continue to grow. This joint effort will bring additional awareness and incorporate security protocols which will greatly reduce these risks for our clients.”
The cybersecurity market is one of the fastest growing markets in technology. Breaches involving accidental email/internet exposure of information were the second most common type of breach incident reported by the identity theft center. Global spending will cumulatively exceed $1 billion dollars over the next 5 years, with cybersecurity damages predicted to reach $6 trillion globally by 2021 reported by CSO online. The need for advanced cyber security tools to prevent data breaches will only continue to increase with an estimated 4 billion online requiring security by 2020.
