Both health care IT professionals and device manufacturers are responsible for securing medical devices in light of emerging IoT threats.
CISOs must possess skills and expertise in multiple areas to combat health care security risks in this age of ransomware and connected medical devices.
Data Activity Monitoring Gives Health Care Organizations X-Ray Vision Into Medical Imaging Security Risks
Poor medical imaging security can have potentially life-threatening consequences such as delayed treatment, inaccurate diagnosis and prescription fraud.
Many health care security risks stem from insufficient leadership and limited resources, which can often be attributed to a lack of security awareness.
The idea of employing basic endpoint hygiene to keep your data safe seems like a no-brainer. So why was the WannaCry ransomware attack so damaging?
