Welcome to the Cybersecurity Resource Hub


Advancements in technology are positively transforming the delivery of patient care and ways in which we connect. At the same time, advances in technology are increasingly exploited by cyber criminals and hackers for malicious purposes including financial gain. The following numbers provide insights into the cost-related impacts and frequency of cyber events.

Cybersecurity by numbers

  • $9.23 million: The average cost of a data breach in healthcare in 2021.
  • $10.5 trillion: The expected cost  of cybercrime worldwide by 2025.
  • 11 seconds: How often a cyberattack occurs.

The American College of Radiology® (ACR®) IT Commission Cybersecurity Work Group is launching this cybersecurity resource page to better equip radiologists with the necessary tools and knowledge to keep them, their patients and organizations safe.
