Despite hospital cybersecurity investments reaching all-time highs, security threats related to IoMT and IoT devices are enabling ransomware and other cyber attacks at an unprecedented rate.
Based on data from millions of connected devices at hundreds of hospitals in the US and around the world, Cynerio’s “State of Healthcare IoT Device Security 2022” research report provides hard numbers about the threats endangering patient safety and data and what to do about them.
Among the report’s findings:
- Over 50% of connected devices in a typical hospital have critical risks present
- Almost 3/4 of IV pumps have vulnerabilities that could threaten patient safety if exploited
- More than 50% of devices in oncology, pharmacology and laboratory departments run on old versions of Windows that are no longer updated
- While vulnerabilities like Urgent11 and Ripple20 make headlines, the most common device risk remains insecure passwords
- Effective network segmentation addresses over 90% of critical device risks
