Persistent and Pervasive Cybersecurity Across the Health IT Landscape

October 23, 2017 by Dillon Woodard

Red Sky_Aruba HC_Blog Image.jpgUnprecedented access to information anytime and anywhere is fueling the demand for personalized service delivery in every sector, including healthcare. At the same time, escalating costs are driving a keen focus on a lean model of managed care intended to boost the bottom line. Treatment centers worldwide are embracing mobility to streamline clinician workflows and improve patient experience. At the same time, healthcare organization leaders must comply with stringent patient privacy and cybersecurity regulations.

More than 7 million patient records have been exposed since 2010 due to hacking or unauthorized access.

The significant surge in network-connected devices coupled with a rapidly expanding and increasingly vulnerable attack surface raise concerns for hospital chief information security officers (CISOs). Maintaining real-time visibility of all devices and user activity on the network is a monumental task. The average hospital supports hundreds of different types of devices featuring a dizzying array of network cards and operating systems. CISOs know that the IT staff is overwhelmed trying to stay on top of vulnerabilities and potential breaches. Malicious actors, inside and outside the healthcare organization, know what security practitioners are up against as they remain poised to attack.
