The US Healthcare Cybersecurity Market, 2018
Overcoming Barriers to Adoption in the Face of an Increasing Threat
  • The healthcare market is a prime target of hackers looking for protected health information (PHI). The US Office of Civil Rights, which tracks major data security breaches in the healthcare space, reported at least 300 significant breaches in 2018 alone. This situation is exacerbated by the fact that the threat posed by hackers is increasing every year.

    In addition, technological advances will require an even more focused approach to security in healthcare. In particular, the Internet of Medical Things will greatly expand both the number of devices in the healthcare network and the number of exploitable points. As the number and variety of devices explodes, healthcare IT will be faced with a much more complex security environment.

    Likewise, the application of new analytical tools based on artificial intelligence, Big Data, and cloud services will make the security of patient data harder to achieve. Big Data alone has the potential to amplify the effect of data breeches. Where previously a breach could compromise a subset of patient information, with Big Data lakes living in an interconnected cloud environment, a breach can now expose vast amounts of personally identifiable patient data.
