Global Health IT Security Market: Snapshot

Health IT security is needed by organizations to combat cybercrime and ransomware that hospitals and healthcare organizations are susceptible to. The complex infrastructure and the range of devices used by healthcare organizations provide a host of entry and pivot points that cybercriminals can exploit. This requires hospitals and healthcare organizations to be equipped to sustain the evolving threat landscape and comprehend the most common areas of cyber security risk.

Amongst all attacks that hospitals and healthcare organizations are susceptible to, ransomware has surfaced as the most feared hacking technique. The technique has the potential to allow hackers to seal access to data until a sum of money is paid to them. As per findings of a recent research, hospitals are the target of 88% of cases of ransomware. The other areas that pose risk of data breach for hospitals and healthcare organizations are inadequately secured IoT devices and human error element. This, along with HIPPAA and other regulatory requirements necessitate health information to be protected. Healthcare organizations have plentiful serious security considerations that must be timely addressed in order to ensure patient safety and privacy.

Healthcare organizations are implementing a number of processes to maximize the security effort and attain compliance. These are establishing a security plan, prioritize offline storage, secure biomedical devices, educate users, and train patients. This is because information security and patient privacy are key components of a well-operating healthcare environment. Moreover, the privacy and security realms of healthcare information and management systems society (HIMSS) provide resources so as to assist healthcare organizations with their privacy and security goals.
