Healthcare data is ten times more valuable than credit card data alone, making it the most valuable thief target. On July 14, moderator Andrew Pearce, Senior Digital Health Strategist of Analytics at HIMSS, spoke with two subject matter experts about cybersecurity trends in Healthcare and their advice for finding and correcting gaps during the webinar “Are your Medical Devices Cybersecure?”
As digital transformation outpaces the industry’s ability to safeguard new technology, a gap has emerged between gains in digital maturity and advances in security maturity (in Healthcare). As a result, most Healthcare providers, according to Staynings, may have, At best, a haphazard inventory of IoT assets, with few people aware of the risks. According to him, this leaves considerable vulnerabilities in security risk management just waiting to be exploited.
To be able to protect your environment, it’s a fundamental strategy. Because the pace of technological advancement in Healthcare is so rapid, it’s challenging for physicians to know what they have and how to secure it. As a result, security services will become more prevalent in Healthcare, allowing providers to redirect their efforts away from patient care and toward cybersecurity.
