CYBERSECURITY FOR THE MEDICAL AND HEALTHCARE SECTOR
Protect sensitive data from your staff, patients, and suppliers.
As patient care systems become increasingly dependent on internal networks to function, cyber attacks in the healthcare industry are progressively becoming more widespread. Modern hackers seek to disrupt operations by gaining access to your vulnerable systems connected to the internet which allows them to infect other internal systems that are crucial for patient care. These attackers will attempt to compromise any confidential information and infect networks with damaging attacks such as ransomware in order to completely lock the use of any systems on the network, allowing them to demand a sum to be paid for the systems/data to be unlocked. To make matters worse, healthcare providers are often stuck with legacy systems which have been integrated alongside new technologies, providing a greater risk of being affected by a cyber attack which spreads across other vulnerable systems.
The risks, however, extend beyond the safety of patients. While technological innovations are allowing medical practitioners to access medical records efficiently from any devices, the risks for the patient’s personal data to be compromised has increased significantly.
Cybersecurity Challenges in the Healthcare Sector
Secure medical equipment against service interruptions.
Implementing new technologies in conjunction with legacy systems.
Securing public services from attacks aiming to disrupt the availability of the services.
Educating staff about Cybersecurity risks.
Securing legacy systems from intrusions.
Maintaining technological innovations secure from cyber attacks.
Securing confidential patient information while maintaining data availability for medical practitioners
Any Questions Concerning our Services ?
Quick Assessment of your Cybersecurity with 6 Questions:
How often are security audits carried out on legacy systems?
How regularly are systems and databases backed up in the event of a ransomware attack?
Is there a system in place to detect intrusions?
Is your staff adequately trained on Cybersecurity risks?
How often are Manual Penetration Tests performed on critical systems?
Are there systems in place to prevent sophisticated attacks?
What systems and procedures are in place to mitigate the impact of a cyber attack?
How often are internal penetration tests performed?
If you could not confidently answer most of these questions, we recommend re-evaluating your systems and procedures in place to mitigate the eventuality of a cyber threat.
Whether it’s for the integration of new technologies, the implementation of a new feature or simply to assess the security of your systems that were assumed to be secure, It is fundamental to regularly perform manual penetration tests to identify your risks of being affected by a damaging cyber attack and to correct your vulnerabilities before they are exploited.
