Cyber Threats to the Medical Industry are Rising
The transition from traditional to connected healthcare is not painless. The number of cyberattacks on IoT devices has sky rocketed in recent years, shown by a staggering 300% increase in the number of observed attacks in the first half of 2019 alone, compared to the second half of 2018. Over the next decade, it is estimated that 50 billion connected medical devices will be deployed throughout clinical systems, which demonstrates the size of the opportunity, as well as the threat. A successful cyberattack on a medical device can not only compromise critical data, but also put the lives of patients and users at risk.
