Healthcare Institutions Face Unprecedented Physical and Cybersecurity Threats. How Can They Overcome Them?
Hospitals, clinics, and other healthcare institutions understand the danger of violence against medical professionals. Alongside that physical security concern, those institutions also face serious cybersecurity risks, especially given their sensitive information on patients and the threat of ransomware attacks.
That makes it particularly important for medical centers to ensure that their physical security devices are monitored and maintained consistently. When they do not manage those devices adequately, they can be left exposed to both physical dangers (due to device downtime) and cyber threats (due to the risk of hackers compromising physical security devices).
