Utilizing Blockchain
Hospitals must also review their network
resources before implementing
blockchains. Organizations should consult
blockchain experts to ensure these
processing-heavy networks won't take
too much of the system's capacity.
Go Beyond Blockchain Protections.
Healthcare organizations must recognize
that blockchain is not a complete
security solution. As helpful as it is, it
doesn't address all IoT-related risks, so
additional controls are still necessary.
One of the most important secondary
steps is to segment networks. Medical facilities
should host IoMT devices on their own
systems, apart from all others. That way,
they limit lateral movement and ensure one
breach doesn't jeopardize all resources.
Training employees in security best
practices - including strong password
management and how to spot phishing
attempts - is also crucial. AI-powered
continuous monitoring solutions are
ideal since they enable faster responses
to potential attacks. Hospitals could
theo retically also monitor networks
manually, but few organizations have the
necessary staff, and AI is more reliable.
New Technologies Present Risks
and Opportunities
The IoT unlocks new healthcare possibilities
but also introduces security
and privacy issues. Businesses in this
industry that want to capitalize on this
potential must rethink their cybersecurity
approach.
Blockchain security may be an important
step in these new strategies.
Organizations that recognize the risks
they face and implement these innovations
effectively can embrace the
digital revolution safely. Digitization
may quickly lead to dangerous and
life-threatening risks without a new,
tech-centric security approach.
