Healthcare organizations are rich attack targets based on the high value of their data and challenges associated with the increased vulnerabilities associated with less-than-secure medical devices.
Whether you are a healthcare provider, insurance, pharmaceutical or hospital, there is a critical need to know whether you have a threat within your network and if sensitive information is being exfiltrated. Healthcare organizations have increased information security as a business priority. However, the majority believe there are still many vulnerabilities in their network infrastructure not addressed adequately. The increase in reported breaches validates that perimeter security solutions are not able to reliably prevent BOTS and Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) from accessing patient data and other confidential information.
Concerns about virus/malware attacks, phishing attacks, and the slow pace at which such attacks are detected and defeated remain the top motivators for improving information security systems. Top medical device vulnerability concerns continue to be centered on health care devices running with default passwords, systems running old unpatched software and end-of-support software.
Webinar: Mission Health’s experience with the Qakbot malware and their use of the Attivo BOTsink forensic technology in the remediation process.
Speakers: Daniel Gallagher, Mission Health – Robert Crisp, Attivo Networks.
Attivo takes a modern approach to IT security and operates on the premise that attackers will get inside the network. Attivo created advanced network security solutions that use deception based threat detection. These techniques help healthcare organizations dramatically increase the speed in which threats inside the network are uncovered, understand an attacker’s intent and establish a defense against future attacks. Attivo’s techniques are proven to detect threats against patient records and information stored in data centers; medical devices used to treat patients, the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) used by doctors, and Internet/web presence.
Healthcare organizations are rich attack targets based on the high value of their data. They are also highly vulnerable to attack due to the ease of access characteristic of less-than-secure medical devices. Today’s security perimeter solutions are no longer adequate to prevent BOTs and Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) from accessing patient data and other confidential information.
