Taking care of people, data and healthcare systems

Measure sector temperature

What’s the diagnosis?

Since Covid-19 the health sector is under pressure, but patients' health remains the main priority. An objective that hackers profit from as they take advantage of the permanent urgency of access to industry data, in order to receive money via ransomware attacks. Especially since the healthcare sector is particularly vulnerable due to the lack of investment in cybersecurity, the vulnerabilities of existing technology and the behavior of staff. The progressive digitization of the sector, notably on the inter-connections between IT systems and equipment or on data exchanges, has strongly increased the attack surface, allowing the possibilities of data-breaches to grow.

The attractiveness of health data

Health data brings more value due to its multitude of information. The average value of health records on the dark web is estimated to be $100, while a credit card number is only valued at $1 or $2. Health appears to be the new Eldorado for hackers, and the sector has a lot of catching up to do.

Security Navigator 2024: explore some key findings for healthcare

According to our research the main challenges for IT security in healthcare are:

  • Legacy systems that have to be maintained for operating expensive machinery
  • Complex network setups that had to be extended on demand
  • Redundancy is a requirement: failure of certain systems can be life-threatening
  • The “medical IoT” offers an increasing attack surface as security is hardly ever considered in the development of such devices.

Health Care and Social Assistance is in 6th place this year with 5% of all Cyber Extortion (Cy-X) victims we recorded. The number of victims increased by 61% compared to last year. Three quarters of the threat actors for Health Care and Social Care incidents were classified as External, which means that internal actors are much less of a concern than in other industries (industry average: 43% of incidents caused internally).
