Download your free copy of the report: “Attack Surfaces in Healthcare from a Hacker’s Point of View” for a data-driven look into:

  • How much different subsectors of healthcare have adopted the cloud
  • The relative risks each face with exposed databases and other lingering security flaws
  • How these risks map to HIPAA and NIST Cybersecurity Framework guidelines

The healthcare sector has experienced exponential growth in its cloud footprint and attack surface. With new cloud tools, a more remote workforce, and higher demand in coping with greater numbers healthcare companies are composed of an increasingly fractured environment composed of a patchwork of different vendors, systems, standards, and integrators, which pose challenges to cybersecurity success.

Censys measured the attack surface for the top companies in the healthcare sector across five different sub-sectors:

  • Hospitals
  • Health insurance companies
  • Medical device manufacturers
  • Electronic health care record providers
  • Pharmaceutical industry

What we found surprised us – these subsectors have, in the aggregate, basic cybersecurity flaws which threaten business intellectual property and patient confidentiality. Learn how to automate monitoring and remediate these risk and schedule a free demo & report of your attack surface.
