PROTECTIVE LAYERS – CYBERSECURITY FOR HEALTHCARE
Layered defense is key to a successful Cybersecurity Strategy in Healthcare which starts with endpoint management. The number of internet connected (IoT) devices is exploding. In a healthcare setting, these “endpoint” devices not only provide significant new opportunities for improving patient care, but also present serious risks for increased attack surfaces for hackers. In the same way that a patient’s injured skin surface can be a pathway into the body for a serious infection, an unprotected endpoint device presents a highly potential point of entry for a cyberattack. In the same way that a patient might be protected by multiple layers of preventive care (good hygiene, antiseptics, sterile bandages, and immune system support), any device connected to a healthcare network should be protected by multiple layers of IT security (good process design, access control/logging, antivirus, application whitelisting, version control, and intelligent threat analysis).
