Top 10 cybersecurity companies in healthcare

With healthcare one of the most targeted sectors for cyber attackers, we explore 10 of the leading cybersecurity companies in the healthcare industry

With huge amounts of sensitive data and a far-reaching attack surface, the healthcare industry is one of the most targeted sectors for cyber attackers.

In many cases, cyberattacks against healthcare organisations carry a high cost for organisations, with the cost of a data breach growing by 42% over the past two years.  According to Check Point’s Cost of a Data Breach Report, healthcare continues to have the highest data breach cost of any industry, averaging over US$10m per incident.

Here are some of the top cybersecurity challenges for the healthcare industry:

  • Data Breaches and Patient Privacy: Protecting patient data is paramount in healthcare. Data breaches can result in the exposure of sensitive medical records, personal information, and financial data. Healthcare organisations must implement robust security measures to safeguard this information from cyberattacks.
  • Ransomware Attacks: Ransomware attacks have been on the rise in healthcare. These attacks can disrupt hospital operations, leading to delayed patient care and potential harm. Attackers often demand large ransoms to unlock critical systems and data, putting a significant financial burden on healthcare institutions.
  • IoT Device Vulnerabilities: The proliferation of Internet of Things (IoT) devices in healthcare, such as medical devices and wearables, has expanded the attack surface. Many of these devices lack proper security measures, making them vulnerable to hacking. Securing these devices is crucial to prevent unauthorised access and potential patient harm.
  • Legacy Systems and Software: Many healthcare organisations still rely on legacy systems and outdated software that may not receive regular security updates. These systems are often more vulnerable to cyberattacks. Migrating to more secure and up-to-date technologies can be a challenge due to cost and compatibility issues.
  • Human Error and Insider Threats: Human error remains a significant cybersecurity challenge. Healthcare employees may inadvertently compromise security through actions like clicking on phishing emails or mishandling patient data. Insider threats, whether intentional or accidental, can pose a serious risk to data security and patient privacy.
