Cyber Security for Healthcare

Healthcare, like many industries, is facing more advanced and persistent cyber threats. However, organisations in Healthcare need to take this threat more seriously than most because its not just money, data and company assets on the lines, its people’s health.

Whilst this might sound daunting, the silver lining of increasingly sophisticated cyber threats is an increase in cyber security measures to counter them, smartbloc. is the managed service from norm. to help tackle the cyber threat in Healthcare.

Top three cyber problems facing the healthcare industry

1. Phishing attacks

Most phishing attacks get conducted through social engineering and are sent over a message or an email. The cyber criminal may send a statement saying that a password is not valid and gives a link to reset it. Any regular user will fail to realize that the page is not original but engineered, and they will reset the password, which gets sent to the attacker. Attackers the use these credentials to access accounts and steal critical data.

2. Data breaches

The average cost of a healthcare data breach is £8.18 million ($10.10 million) and the healthcare industry continues its reign as the number one cyber attack target. For 12 consecutive years. It’s clear that data breaches are one of the biggest challenges for the healthcare vertical. The emphasis is on proper device management and monitoring and encryption of sensitive data related to patients and their medication.

3. Unsecure medical devices

Around five million unsecured medical devices were running through Internet of Things and Internet of Medical Things in 2020. Having secure access to medical devices and equipment connected to the internet is paramount. Unfortunately, most hospitals have other things to focus on, which leaves gaps for cyber criminals to penetrate the network.
