The field of healthcare has witnessed a significant transformation in recent years with the advent…
The healthcare industry in Australia is increasingly tempting to cyber attackers, as it carries citizens’ data worth billions of dollars in the form of intellectual property, R&D, and patient and clinical trial information. Sophos Cloud Security addresses the significant cybersecurity challenges emerging from this sector’s dependence on third-party suppliers, IT/OT convergence, hybrid and multi-vendor clouds, and more.
Healthcare providers in Australia are embracing new technologies such as network-connected medical devices, remote patient monitoring, telehealth, and medical applications like image archiving and communication systems (PACS). Simultaneously, healthcare providers in Sydney are outsourcing their operations to IT service providers and adopting growing IT trends, including taking managed cloud services, machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI), and mobility to enable better patient care and enhance access to patient data. As they do so, cyber attackers are deploying increasingly cultivated invasion techniques to acquire access to sensitive patient and healthcare data, far more helpful on the dark web than any other type of information.
