Cyber-Attacks: Rising Threat to Healthcare

Traditionally doctors and healthcare providers have been the custodians of patient care. Information on patients’ ailments, their medical records, and medical research documents used to be stacked up in the hospital storeroom in the form of physical documents.

Today, Healthcare and Lifesciences organizations are using technology to produce, collect, interpret, and share immense volumes of medical data and patient information.


Challenges

Since health information systems have become increasingly digital, inter-connected, and consumer-driven, cyberattacks in the industry are on the rise. Securing IOT-based medical devices, Cloud/data storage networks, IT server systems from Ransomware, Malware, and Phishing attacks have become a major challenge for Healthcare and Lifesciences Industry.

Even as the global healthcare sector battles the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the number of cyberattacks targeting it has surged. The valuable COVID-19 research studies have become a prime target of cybercriminals. Thus, it has become imperative for healthcare and life Sciences organizations to address these concerns and strengthen their cybersecurity framework and physical infrastructure.
