The loss, ransom or any failure to access patient data is an increasing risk that can impact the mission of a healthcare organisation and damage the trust in their staff and reputation.
Things get worse when the integrity of the data cannot be guaranteed which could lead to patient misidentification, wrong diagnosis and even mistreatment, who dares to take these risks?
Different regulators such as privacy, critical infrastructures and medical devices are enforcing more and more security requirements on the competitive and highly regulated healthcare organisations.
Understanding this rapidly changing threat landscape to safeguard the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of managed data is the task of product security and at Philips we take this task seriously.
