In healthcare, cybersecurity plays a crucial role in protecting sensitive medical data and ensuring the continuous operation of medical facilities.

Cybersecurity in Healthcare Trends

Increase in the number of attacks

According to industry research, the healthcare sector is experiencing an annual increase in the number of cyberattacks, with ransomware being one of the most common threats.

High cost of breaches

The average cost of a data breach in healthcare is among the highest compared to other industries.

Cyber threats in healthcare

Healthcare Data Breach

Leads to breaches of confidentiality and legislation, impacting reputation.

Attacks on equipment

Create a threat to patient safety and health, leading to service disruptions.

Attack on electronic systems

Access to records, alteration of medical data, extortion of healthcare organizations.

A notorious example occurred when the UK's National Health Service was hit by the WannaCry ransomware attack in May 2017, affecting computer systems in 150 countries, leading to ambulance diversions and the cancellation of surgeries.
