How cybersecurity is attained in healthcare delivery?
Hello, how cybersecurity is attained in healthcare delivery? Someone can gain access to the hospital network and patient information or even affect the operation of the device. How to prevent these situations, or mitigate them if they do occur? Please leave your comments.
@sujit In healthcare delivery organizations, HTM and IT staff come together to support device security efforts. Threats to medical devices here are typically twofold. First, viruses or other malware can infect a medical device and affect its operation (coming either from removable media or from Internet access). Second, by exploiting vulnerabilities in medical device software. It is the responsibility of HTM and IT staff to prevent any lapse in security issue. Personnel on the information security or IT side will usually hold the keys to the healthcare network. IT staff should be able to monitor network traffic to and from these devices and perform vulnerability scans. If the scans detect viruses or malware, they can shut down ports or wireless access to the affected device. Also they would be responsible for increasing security to prevent intrusions on the clinical network
