As COVID19 rages on worldwide with its most recent upticks in positivity rate, the issue of Healthcare Security is coming at the forefront yet once again. This industry has always been in the cross hairs of the Cyberattacker, especially when it comes to the heisting of the Personal Identifiable Information (PII) datasets of patients. Even before the passages of the GDPR and the CCPA, HIPAA has always been around since the mid-1990s in order to ensure that enough authentication mechanisms are in place.
But even this is not proving to be enough. The Healthcare Industry is once again being impacted, by a slew of Ransomware attacks. It is only predicted that this will get worse. Part of the reason for this is the evolution of the Internet of Things, or IoT for short.
In this regard, many medical devices that are implanted in patients are now connected to their doctor’s offices. If this line of network communications were to be intercepted by a malicious third party, the patient’s life could be in literal jeopardy.
In this podcast, we have the honor and the privilege of interviewing Dr. Anita Finnegan. She is the Founder and CEO of Nova Leah, a world leader in the provision of cybersecurity risk management solutions for connected medical devices.
