Securing the IoT Threat in Healthcare

Gartner predicts that the number of connected devices that the internet of things (IoT) will hit 25 billion by 2021. While IoT opens the door for innovative new approaches and services, it also presents new cybersecurity risks. This is particularly true in healthcare, where a vast array of connected devices and instruments are being utilized to deliver on the promise of improved patient care. From our analysis of 1.2 million IoT devices over two years, however, we discovered that 98% of IoT traffic is unencrypted and 83% of medical imaging systems are using out of support OS. IoT security in hospitals not only impacts data security but it also impacts patient safety. In this webinar, Dr. May Wang, the co-founder of Zingbox and Mark Baik, a healthcare security architect for Palo Alto Networks discuss the current state of IoT security in Healthcare, explore the top threats from our recent publication of IoT Threat Report and best practices that you can adopt to secure your organization.
