The risk of cyber threats to the global healthcare system is undeniable–and growing.
Hospitals and other point-of-care environments are facing the enormous challenge of providing patients with the most innovative and advanced medical technologies, while also keeping all stakeholders safe from cyber attacks that exploit vulnerabilities in the rising number of cloud-based systems, mobile and wearable devices, and the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT), as well as aging legacy devices and those facing obsolescence.
In turn, healthcare facilities are putting much more scrutiny on medical device OEMs to demonstrate a good understanding of their organizations’ security requirements and how their solutions can alleviate security concerns long before cyber attacks or breaches arise.
