Research Report

The State of NHS Trust IoT Device Security 2023

This report is the first of its kind for the U.K. market and it examines devices, risks, and preventive measures currently being taken in 14 NHS Trusts, from department-level device distribution to identifying devices with the most critical risks. We hope this report will provide an accurate insight into the risks NHS Trusts face and how these can be overcome.

Ponemon Institute Survey of Over 500 Hospitals Reveals:

Healthcare IoT Risks Compromise Care

Cynerio’s latest report in collaboration with the Ponemon Institute shows that the cybersecurity industry isn’t doing enough to protect hospitals from attacks:


of hospitals have had their IoT/IoMT devices attacked in the past two years.


of hospital data breaches involve IoT devices.


of attacked hospitals pay the ransom when victimised by ransomware.


of hospitals had increased mortality rates after a cyberattack.

Device Risks Enable Hospital Cyber Threats

Cynerio Research Shows Vulnerable Healthcare IoT Makes Hospitals an Attack Target

Network-connected medical devices have made patient care more streamlined and efficient but also expanded the attack surface.  As a result, the typical hospital environment is at greater risk of a data breach or having its infrastructure shut down by a ransomware attack:

Over 50% of healthcare IoT devices have a critical risk that would jeopardise patient health, safety or data if exploited.

Almost 75% of IV pumps have vulnerabilities that endanger patient safety.

More than 50% of oncology, pharmacology and lab devices run on versions of Windows that have reached end of life.

Move aside Urgent11 and Ripple20 – even in 2022, the most common healthcare IoT device risk is an insecure password!
