The Internet of Medical Things is opening up a new world of possibilities to improve upon patient care. However, as the proliferation of connected and complex medical devices grows, care providers are more susceptible to cyberattacks than ever and must ensure IoT security strategies are robust to enable the future of care, according to new research from Irdeto.
Two years on from the crippling WannaCry ransomware outbreak, the Irdeto Global Connected Industries Cybersecurity Survey of 232 security decision makers in organizations in the healthcare sector (700 respondents in total) found that 82% have experienced an IoT-focused cyberattack in the past year.
Of the organizations hit by an attack, 30% report experiencing compromised end-user safety, an alarming finding as global care providers fight to ensure the security of care facilities, medical devices and the safety of patients.
