Report Description

Cyber-attacks and threats across healthcare facilities, pharma companies, R&D centers across the globe are becoming increasingly sophisticated. As per a report by checkpoint, a 45% increase in cyberattacks on healthcare organizations was witnessed between November and December in 2020. The adoption of new technologies such as AI, IoT, ML coupled with the lack of proper safety considerations is creating an opportunity for hackers to attack healthcare organizations. As per a report, more than 80% of healthcare IT leaders say their systems have been compromised.

Moreover, Increasing internet penetration and surging adoption of digital technologies such as IoMT, connected devices globally are resulting in increasing demand for cybersecurity solutions. During 2001-2021, the world registered 1,331.9% growth. An average hospital room contains 15 to 20 connected medical devices. In some hospitals, connected medical devices outnumber mobile devices, such as laptops and smartphones, 4 to 1. A large hospital could be home to as many as 85,000 connected devices. Moreover, around 60% of hospitals were using three or more connected health technologies as of 2018, as revealed by Deloitte.

As healthcare organizations continue to respond to the pandemic, cybercriminals persist in their attacks on providers, health plans, and business associates. More than 500 healthcare organizations have reported a breach of 500+ patient records to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office for Civil Rights (OCR) through the first 10 months of 2020, and it was expected that the numbers will surpass 550 by the end of 2020. In total, 513 entities have reported a significant breach so far, equating to 23.5 million individuals impacted. Furthermore, a rise in the healthcare data breach during a pandemic is leading to the greater adoption of cybersecurity solutions. The average cost of a breach in healthcare has increased 10.5% from 2019 to 2020. The average health care data breach costs its victim $7.13 million, the highest cost in 2020 across all industries. That is almost double the global average.
