The digitization of healthcare has given caregivers the power to access, analyze, manage, and share data in ways never before possible. It has also made your medical devices, systems, networks, and hospital data highly vulnerable to cybercrime.
Malicious computer viruses, worms, and hacker intrusions.
Sophisticated attacks demanding ransom for access to your own clinical data.
Hostile attempts to breach valuable personal information stored in healthcare records.
The threats are rarely clear, but always present. They can have a lasting impact on the security of your infrastructure, the interoperability of medical devices and clinical systems, and the integrity of patient data.
