As such, proprietors must adequately protect their environment from these malicious attacks. Due to the increase of interconnected, web-enabled medical devices over the past decade, there is a greater impetus to secure health organizations who now seamlessly exchange patient information along its operational networks.
Here are the top cybersecurity challenges facing the healthcare industry:

• Valuable patient information stolen and posted on the darknet
• Medical devices lacking adequate security controls
• Ransomware attacks
• Lack of proper cyber risk training among healthcare workers
• Use of outdated technology used in these healthcare facilities.
