Security Impacts of Connected Medical Devices on Healthcare Providers
What are the top three security and privacy impacts of connected medical devices? Find out in this Gartner Report.
Connected medical devices offer the potential to improve patient care and operational efficiency, but also introduce new privacy and security risks. Healthcare provider security and risk management leaders should rethink their privacy and security practice in light of these new risks. Read this Gartner report and gain insights and recommendations for challenges such as:
- Privacy rules and regulations, such as HIPAA and GDPR, put a tremendous onus on providers to assure privacy for sensitive data
- Regulatory guidance on security is vague and nonbinding, creating ambiguity about which procurement practices providers should follow to ensure medical device security
- Legacy medical devices that were not designed to be internet-accessible are now being connected to the internet, increasing risks and the attack surface
