Healthcare Security

Securing every corner of
the healthcare ecosystem

Healthcare is a top target for cyberattacks—and the
consequences can impact patient outcomes. From
patients to payers, from data to devices, digital trust
is a must for the medical world.

The high cost of healthcare insecurity

Technology has done miraculous things for medicine—for both the patients receiving care and the people providing, paying, and innovating for it. But for attackers, the high value of patient data and the high number of attack surfaces turn the entire healthcare field into a gold mine.

That makes the industry a prime target for bad actors. And the consequences for patients and the organizations involved with their care can be incredibly costly.

    Protecting patient data
    Data breaches can impact patient safety

    Whether you’re a provider, payer, or device manufacturer, a data breach on your organization’s watch is bad for business—and dangerous if it disrupts patients’ care. In the high-touch world of healthcare, ensuring integrity and safety of data is non-negotiable.

    Maintaining compliance
    Compliance reduces risk—but it’s hard to navigate

    More connected devices, systems and software mean more streamlined care—and more exposure to security risks. Regulations can help mitigate those risks, but compliance is a constant battle for providers, payers, and manufacturers without the proper tools in place.

    Planning for future threats
    Today’s life-saving equipment is tomorrow’s danger

    Quantum computing will revolutionize healthcare. But today's medical equipment can't stand up to quantum's threat to current encryption algorithms. The long lives of data and devices mean a quantum tomorrow is a problem for today.
