The healthcare industry relies increasingly on Internet-connected devices and solutions to improve patient care, organizational efficiency, speed of crisis response, and much more.The emergence of telemedicine, digital health records, online medical devices, patient wellness apps, and an increasing amount of third parties entering the health supply chain has created many benefits. However, it has also exposed the industry to vulnerabilities that cybercriminals can exploit.

The third week of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month delves into the healthcare industry, exploring the vulnerabilities of Internet-connected healthcare devices, and what steps users can take to Protect It and do their part and #BeCyberSmart.

Week 4

Week of October 26 (Week 4): The Future of Connected Devices

Do your part

The final week of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month examines the future of Internet-connected devices. NCSAM Week 4 will explore how technological innovations, such as 5G, might impact consumers’ and businesses’ online experiences (e.g. faster speeds and data transmission, and larger attack surfaces for cybercriminals).

We will also examine how people and infrastructure can adapt to the continuous evolution of Internet-connected devices moving forward. It is not only necessary to safeguard our personal devices, but all the devices we interact with. No matter what the future brings, everyone needs to be to do their part and #BeCyberSmart to ensure the safety of cyberspace.
