Healthcare is not only one of the most important industries in the world, but also a major recipient of cyber attacks. The industry is especially targeted by cybercriminals due to its wealth of valuable sensitive data. This data, when sold on the black market, fetches ten times more the price of any other data. Therefore, it is essential to employ reliable cyber security measures in the healthcare industry to mitigate security risks.

Healthcare Cyber Security: An Introduction

Among the regularly evolving cyber security threats, the Healthcare industry’s ability to protect patient data remains questionable. With the outdated technology used in hospitals, the unprepared hospital personnel, and easy to tamper IoT medical devices, the healthcare industry makes an easy target for cybercriminals. These attacks can not only disrupt the IT framework of the healthcare sector, they can also pose a severe threat to a patient’s life. The healthcare industry faces many cyber threats, such as –


A ransomware attack encrypts valuable data and demands a ‘ransome’ for the decryption key.

Insider Threats

Since insiders have access to an organization’s resources, they can easily exploit them.


Botnets bombard a server with traffic requests to extract data, or infect websites with malware.
