Why Cybersecurity is Difficult to Achieve for Healthcare Organizations

As healthcare institutions have been grappling with the overwhelming impact of COVID-19, many have also been fighting a second battle against hackers. Malicious hackers know that healthcare organizations continue to be hyper-focused on addressing the pandemic, making them prime targets for ransomware. At the same time, they continue to deploy connected medical devices to help doctors, nurses, and clinicians deliver faster, higher quality care. But these devices also create an attack surface that most healthcare delivery organizations have difficulty seeing and securing. And when it comes to connected medical devices, poor cybersecurity poses risks to patient safety and puts millions at risk. When looking at your cybersecurity efforts, you need to consider the following:

  • How do you secure medical devices that can’t take an agent or be scanned?
  • How do you detect and stop ransomware attacks?
  • How do you find the vulnerabilities that affect billions of devices across the globe?
  • How do you protect PHI data that may be sent across the network unencrypted?
  • How do you ensure patient safety and hospital operations?
