The Cyber Threat to Global Health

The Growing Risk of Cyberattack to the Healthcare Industry

The healthcare industry has become a prime target for cybercriminals. A familiarity with old technology, financial restrictions and overworked staff mean healthcare organisations have struggled to update cyber security infrastructure, from digital assets to personnel. To make matters worse, the international Covid-19 pandemic has made medical institutions targets for state-sponsored actors as well as individual cybercriminals groups.

Cyber Citadel recommends a three-pronged approach to cyber security in the healthcare industry: identify vulnerabilities, prioritise critical risks and invest in cyber security.
