MEDJACKING: A LIFE OR DEATH ISSUE FOR LEADERS IN CONNECTED HEALTHCARE

July 21, 2018

When you imagine medical devices being breached by cybercriminals, your thoughts might automatically go to the horror scenario—a pacemaker being ordered to drive 800 volts into the heart of an unsuspecting politician or an infusion pump being shut off or instructed to deliver a deadly multi-dose administration. While threats like these need to be taken seriously, healthcare IT leaders are looking at bigger picture organizational threats when it comes to medical device breaches, or "medjacking" as it has come to be known.

Security Operations Maturity Model

whitePaper | February 20, 2020

As the threat landscape continues to evolve, your cybersecurity efforts must follow suit. With your security operations center (SOC) at the core of your offense against threats, you must ensure that it can handle anything that comes its way. To be effective, you need to mature your SOC to stop threats early — before damage occurs. Whether your SOC is a virtual team of two to three or a 24x7 operation, maturing your security operations capabilities will help you achieve a faster mean time to detect (MTTD) and mean time to respond (MTTR) to cyberthreats. This white paper explores LogRhythm’s Security Operations Maturity Model (SOMM), which explains how to measure the effectiveness of your security operations. Through the model, you can learn how to mature your security operations capabilities, improving your resilience to cyberthreats.

White Paper on Cyber Security Securing Video Surveillance Devices to Close Network Vulnerabilities

whitePaper | February 19, 2020

We live in an increasingly connected world, where more and more devices and systems are networked and shared with other systems. Convenience is a main driver behind this trend, as people have come to expect the ability to connect to and control devices and systems anywhere, anytime. However, there is a downside to the unprecedented level of convenience provided by the growing number of networked devices, namely increased security risk. Because each device is an endpoint for networks, they introduce the potential to become entry points for hackers and others with malicious intents. In fact, in many of the most high-profile data breaches that have occurred recently, hackers were able to access corporate networks through POS, HVAC and other networked systems that failed to provide an adequate level of security to prevent these types of breaches.
