Challenges Facing Healthcare Firms and IoT Security

Healthcare companies and medical device providers face a unique set of security challenges from the IoT. Firms seek to reduce costs and improve efficiency by developing solutions and devices to work within the Cloud. In addition, battery-powered mission-critical mobile devices that capture and access patient information to improve patient care are exposed to data breaches and poor device performance with increased CPU usage. Confidential patient information and intellectual property combine to form just a portion of the highly sensitive data transmitted by healthcare-related IoT devices and services which are among the costliest of any industry. Any security measures employed by a healthcare firm must fit budgetary constraints, but must also be effective and meet tough HIPAA regulations. A large data breach from any IoT device could cause harm to countless patients, jeopardize years of research, risk insurance coverage and funding, and place the organization in an actionable position for millions of dollars in damages.
