The digital transformation does not stop at the door of the healthcare system and is continuously presenting hospitals, laboratories, pharmaceutical manufacturers and operators of health portals with ever new challenges. Patient data that used to be archived in analog form as a file or index card is now digitized information that must be protected from unauthorized access and malicious tampering. Cybercriminals have increasingly set their sights on medical practices and hospitals in particular as lucrative targets for their attacks. IT security in healthcare is therefore an acute issue for all stakeholders.

Customized protection concepts for digital medicine

New sub-disciplines such as telemedicine require a secure and stable connection between doctor and patient. Disruptions, failures, or sabotage pose a direct threat to the health of the individual. In critical situations, every second counts: If attackers are able to delay access to vital information, this can have grave consequences on the treatment of the patient. If, for example, attackers tamper with the readings from e-health sensors on blood pressure, heart rate, or sugar levels, this can have an adverse impact on the patient’s health.

The strictest security requirements for protecting patients’ lives and well-being

As a result, the healthcare industry, more than any other industry, must tune its digital systems for security and stability. This is why, on the regulatory side, the IT security law requires operators of critically relevant infrastructure such as hospitals, laboratories, and other facilities to secure their processes in the best manner possible using state-of-the-art technology. For example, digital hospital information systems (HIS) must be redundantly secured via emergency plans to ensure access to essential patient and treatment data, even in the event of failure or attack. In addition, the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) governs the protection of sensitive patient data.

Healthcare is critical infrastructure

If patient data is lost as a result of negligence, or if inadequately secured systems fail as the result of a hacker attack, those in positions of responsibility face severe fines and even imprisonment. Penalties can run up to 20 million euros or four percent of annual global revenues, whichever is higher.
