The healthcare industry today is one of the top targets of cyber attackers. This has been driven in large part by the digitization of healthcare delivery. IoT devices deployed on unpartitioned networks with limited access controls and the use of legacy systems has created a vulnerable attack surface.

Cybercriminals intent on stealing personally identifiable information (PII) and protected health information (PHI) can easily exploit this broad attack surface and simultaneously disrupt healthcare delivery processes.

With gaps in policies and procedures resulting in unintentional errors by staff members creates another soft spot for cybercriminals who are looking for weaknesses to exploit.

With Vectra, healthcare organizations can:

  • Identify the early stages of attacks related to ransomware, Zeus, Citadel and other malware variants.
  • Detect compromised medical IoT devices that are used as proxies to carry out targeted attacks.
  • Expose attacker behaviors that attempt to steal PHI, PII and payment card information.
  • Supports healthcare compliance requirements, including PCI DSS, HIPAA and HITECH.
