More than half (55%) of consumers who use mobile health applications expect their health apps to be hacked within the next six months. So too do nearly half of executive IT decision makers (48%) who have oversight or insight into the security of the mobile healthcare apps they produce. This sentiment makes it sound like mobile health applications are at a hopeless state of security where, despite Herculean efforts to thwart attackers, adversaries are expected to prevail.
But it’s not hopeless. It’s careless. Especially when you consider that 50% of organizations have zero budget allocated for mobile app security.
