Healthcare organizations store sensitive patient information which, with increasing digitization, is vulnerable to cyber threats. Cybersecurity in healthcare involves defending medical data and connected devices from unauthorized access, with threats including ransomware, phishing, unsecured devices, DDoS attacks and insider threats. Tools against these threats include access controls, encryption, antivirus/antimalware software, VPNs/firewalls, and intrusion detection systems. Implementing robust cybersecurity measures is vital not just for data protection, but also to prevent misdiagnosis, secure controlled substances, prevent network outages, and avoid legal non-compliance.
