Organisations worldwide have experienced an increase in ransomware attacks and healthcare is one of the industries hit particularly hard.
The extent and impact of a successful attack can be huge in the healthcare industry with patient medical records and financial data at risk of compromise.
It’s a tricky balancing act for healthcare providers, which are responsible for protecting patient privacy while delivering quality patient care and meeting strict regulatory compliance requirements and other regulations, such as GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).

Hospitals are under relentless attack from cyber criminals seeking new ways to breach patient data and exploit financial records. It can take just one employee falling for a fake email (phishing) to send a malicious code through a network in search of additional weaknesses to exploit. Teaching hospitals performing research may be more at risk as the research process requires a greater flow of information and data between organisations, increasing opportunities for systems to be compromised.
Some healthcare providers offer connected medical devices to patients in need of specific care, such as those with blood sugar or blood pressure issues.
The combination of ageing, embedded proprietary software and round-the-clock operation makes managing medical device security a difficult task.
