Lacking skills and budget to seriously invest in OT Security?
In the early days of the pandemic, the healthcare industry lacked the cyber maturity to deal with this period of turmoil.
The influx of patients and organizational response to the virus forced healthcare organizations to undergo a rapid digital transformation that significantly increased their attack surface and highlighted their lack of security infrastructure, weak incident response plans, and the shortage of skilled cybersecurity practitioners.
This delay, in addition to the high market value of healthcare data, has made healthcare facilities a major target for hackers.
In this particularly intense time for healthcare organizations, there is a greater need than ever to provide the most effective tools to ensure patient data security and service continuity.
Medical devices have a fundamental role to play in saving lives by providing technical healthcare solutions for the diagnosis, prevention, monitoring, diagnosis and treatment of disease. Healthcare facilities have many medical devices that are subject to long amortization period (often over 10 years). As a result, systems today incorporate end-of-life technologies that are no longer maintained and are based on old operating systems.
The services and comfort offered to patients have also been a major factor in the digitization of healthcare. Technical services (elevators, air conditioning, medical flows, etc) have become sources of vulnerabilities that need to be protected.
It is now essential that cybersecurity leaders extend their company’s security strategy to encompass an assessment of the security status and threats of any operational environment, especially when it come to the health sector where the risk can be life-threatening.
