Unifying medical device cybersecurity
The more than 3.2M internet of medical things (IoMTs) in use pose a huge medical device cybersecurity problem that is often overlooked by healthcare organizations among the other ransomware and data breach threats.
Healthcare organizations (HCOs) face escalating cyber threats such as ransomware and data breaches, but most fall short in proactive cybersecurity. The more than 3.2 million connected medical devices pose a particular challenge to HCOs already dealing with cybersecurity implementation and management challenges, including costs, planning and even silos of accountability and development.
An adaptable and centralized device security plan may be the answer to continually and consistently identifying risks and prioritizing actions. Having a team dedicated to overseeing the development and implementation of a medical device security strategy and roadmap, working together with IT, can help ensure a successful program is put in place.
The benefits of a proactive, adaptable, and centralized device cybersecurity program include patient safety, reputation and financial protections, and more effective and efficient risk management.
In this special white paper from First Health Advisory, you will learn:
- The security challenges medical devices present HCOs
- How to move IoMT security from the backseat to the front seat to reduce risk
- The important role of a strategic alignment with a medical device steering committee
Fill out the form to the right and get started on the path to unifying medical device security.
