Creating Cyberthreat Immunity in the Healthcare Industry
Digitalization should not impair cybersecurity efficiency.
Healthcare providers are among the institutions in which we place the most trust; critical infrastructures in that they are vital to the well-being and safety of the public. While hospital trusts, medical institutes, and research labs handle unique and valuable assets, important new workflows have evolved in this sector, bringing new and accelerated security challenges.
Systems are now interconnected and mobile devices extensively used both for remote access and for data sharing. This digitization increasingly exposes healthcare organizations to both generic and targeted attacks.
Most awarded, most wanted, most reliable security.
Kaspersky Lab’s True Cybersecurity approach features a spectrum of Next Gen technologies, including multilayered security for endpoints including physical and virtual machines, mobile devices, embedded devices in medical equipment and even cloud based workloads, applying cloud-assisted threat intelligence and machine-learning algorithms to protect systems against most advanced cyberthreats.
Our solutions deliver the precise capabilities needed to build a highly adaptive, straightforward healthcare security ecosystem, without adding complexity to critical processes or impairing the speed and efficiency of IT systems and infrastructure.
IT systems holding and processing sensitive and confidential details about individuals form an attractive target for cybercriminals. We help to secure both patient and staff data against theft, loss or corruption.
We understand that disruption to healthcare services may have a devastating impact on patients’ health, so our cybersecurity solutions are engineered for reliability, resource-efficiency and resilience to promote operational continuity and minimize downtime.
Research labs generate and house assets in the form of intellectual property that have a high value not just to stakeholders, but to cybercriminals. Our solutions build into an adaptive cybersecurity ecosystem to keep those assets safe and secure.
The reputation of a healthcare facility is a non-negligible asset. A cyber-attack – regardless of its nature - will damage credibility if disclosed to the public. We help mitigate risk by sharing our threat intelligence and expertise, and by providing the most advanced security tools and services.
Learn how today’s healthcare organizations, together with Kaspersky Lab, have optimize their investment in security and visibility
Riverside Healthcare needed to be assured that it would be on top of security threats, especially with growing staff numbers. Protection of sensitive data is paramount. Patients' medical records and credit card data needed higher protection for compliance and privacy reasons.
AZ Sint-Jan offers innovative, advanced healthcare services. Digitization of patient care places high demands on a hospital’s ICT environment. Employees must have rapid access to the right data and at the same time, security of both the information and the network must be assured.
The Adelante healthcare group’s core activities are adult rehabilitation and labor market reintegration, pediatric rehabilitation, special education & housing and audiology & communication. Adelante uses electronic patient dossiers in the administration of the rehabilitation process which is to be protected by any means.

In order to fully evaluate and raise your level of cyberthreat immunity, it’s essential that your security vendor clearly understands the processes involved into the day-to-day operations of different players in the healthcare sector, the nature of systems to be defended, their key assets and the impact a successful attack could have.
Failing to pay attention to, or invest sufficiently in, cyber-defenses lays you open to the dangers of falling short of acceptable standards of infrastructure and data protection.
The fact that healthcare providers gather, share and store highly sensitive personal data makes them a particularly attractive target.
Complexity of IT infrastructure and disjointed cybersecurity can reduce visibility and lead to security gaps which cyber-attackers will be quick to exploit.
The prevention of generic attacks should go hand in hand with developing effective protection, detection and response mechanisms against targeted attacks.
