In the digital age, the network has emerged as the central nervous system of healthcare organizations, underpinning their ability to deliver effective and efficient patient care. The rapid digitalization and increased connectivity in healthcare have brought about a surge in data generation, necessitating robust cybersecurity measures to protect both the devices that generate this data and the data itself. Personal health information, a prime target on the black market, underscores the urgency of securing healthcare environments.

The network, as the single point of convergence for all digital interactions, presents a strategic opportunity for implementing security measures, segmenting the network, and isolating components from potential cyber attacks. However, the challenge lies in the growth of the network; a flat, unstructured network can accelerate the spread of threats like ransomware. A well-architected network, equipped with the latest technology, can diversify and mitigate risk, ensuring that an attack on one VLAN doesn’t compromise the entire network.

Upgrading the network not only fortifies security but also enhances deployment speed, reduces costs, saves time, and improves user experience for both hospital staff and patients. Now, let’s hear from experts like Sam Feldman, Account Executive for Asimily, Timur Ozekcin, Co-Founder & CEO for Cylera, William Montgomery, Sales Executive for Step CG, and Richard Staynings, Chief Security Strategist for Cylera, who can provide further insights into this critical issue.
