The healthcare industry remains the highest reporting sector of data breaches and moreover, it continuously incurs the highest costs in terms of damages. Content Security has the expertise needed to secure health’s systems, devices and process from today’s evolving and relentless threat landscape. We can help protect you and your patients from the debilitating effects of a breach.
Below are some of the most concerning cyber threats to health:
Ransomware is the primary threat to the industry and there has been a significant increase of ransomware targeting health and aged care facilities. This type of attack encrypts files and makes devices inoperative. This makes patient care a difficult or even impossible task as it can cripple operations for weeks.
DDoS attacks overwhelm the network and cause critical services to be disrupted or halted. These kinds of attacks are often motivated by political or ideological beliefs, and like ransomware campaigns, are typically easy to deploy as a service. In some situations, DDoS attacks can make patient care impossible because they hinder access to important records.
Employees or other users with malicious interests beyond that of the healthcare provider cause great cybersecurity risk in healthcare. They threaten the integrity and confidentiality of valued information and systems. These internal actors are particularly dangerous because they are not subject to the same security controls as outsider threats.
Our team of security specialists has a wealth of industry experience, with over 20 years in the information security sector. Over the years we have assisted many public and private health institutions in the maintenance of their operations. Our tried and tested approach to securing healthcare organisations involves balancing privacy, protection and productivity. We understand the need to continuously provide and improve patient care and we therefore collaborate with healthcare providers in order to strategically close any gaps caused by industry innovation.
Some of the services we provide include:
Ethical hacking is our passion as it is a vital part of staying on top of threat. We offer penetration testing, red teaming and penetration test response. Our experts simulate attacks on your environment to disclose hidden weaknesses that real attackers seek to exploit.
