Healthcare organizations have countless opportunities to improve care and increase efficiency with IT. They also face the daunting challenges of securing devices, protecting electronic medical records, demonstrating regulatory compliance and combating ransomware attacks.
Connected medical devices offer the potential to improve patient care and operational efficiency, but also introduce new privacy and security risks. Healthcare provider security and risk management leaders should rethink their privacy and security practice in light of these new risks.
