How to Prevent Hackers from Compromising Your Medical Devices

Connected medical devices and the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) are opening up a new world of possibilities to improve upon patient care, while also improving operational productivity and effectiveness. However, as the proliferation of connected and complex medical devices grows, healthcare providers are more susceptible to cyberattacks. This was already reality for many organizations in the healthcare space and the recent pandemic has accelerated the need for remote  healthcare.

A recent survey by Irdeto found that 82% of healthcare organizations have experienced an IoT-focused cyberattack in the past year, with 30% of attacks resulting in compromised end-user safety. This alarming finding indicates that global care providers must continue to evolve their security approach to ensure the security of care facilities, medical devices and the safety of patients.
