What makes healthcare cybersecurity so challenging?
The healthcare industry is a high-value target for cybercriminals, and they often exploit this vulnerability to steal money or even injure people. These hackers are ruthless and will go to great lengths to cause havoc and destruction.
Here are five reasons why medical information is targeted:
Fraudsters can steal medical data and use it to get loans or insurance claims by using forged bills with the patient's credentials. In certain cases, they have also been known to sell stolen information online.
Some criminals threaten patients, saying they will release their compromising medical information if they don't pay a ransom or make other concessions related to the crime. There are some known instances of hackers even threatening healthcare professionals with releasing patient data if they refuse treatment requests.
Criminals can use stolen healthcare data to lure individuals into becoming spies, insiders, or even cybercriminals themselves. This information can also be used to identify potential victims and exploit their vulnerabilities for personal gain.
Medical devices used for critical or life-saving procedures are often connected to the internet and exposed to a high risk of cyberattack. Hackers may target these devices for espionage or even damage to achieve their goals.
Doctors and health care practitioners are often the targets of ransomware attacks. In these attacks, criminals encrypt files on a victim's computer and demand an amount in exchange for unlocking them. This attack is particularly harmful because it can prevent access to patient’s health records and other vital healthcare information.
The sheer volume of data that medical institutions must safeguard makes it difficult to stay secure.
Here are some of the more common challenges:
Downtime is not an option
Cyberattacks can cause significant outages in medical systems, leading to a loss of patient data and even causing complications with patient care. Proper backups are essential for mitigating this risk.
