Continued Threats Require a Major Shift in Healthcare Cybersecurity Risk Perception

 

Recent cyberattacks on healthcare institutions have thrust cybersecurity from a back-office concern to the forefront of the healthcare industry’s agenda. A significant breach at Change Healthcare disrupted essential services, underlining the vulnerability of healthcare networks to such threats and the dire consequences for patient care. Government and industry responses have stressed the importance of third-party cybersecurity assessments and compliance standards to fortify healthcare infrastructure. With a staggering 63% of known exploited vulnerabilities identified within healthcare networks, including critical medical devices, the sector is under immense pressure to bolster its defenses. This urgency is more than protecting data; it’s about creating a proactive defense to ensure patient care continuity amidst the digital transformation.
