Boundless Cybersecurity for a Safer Healthcare Industry

The increasing number of vulnerability disclosures — as well as risks associated with unpatched critical systems, web applications and Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) — is challenging Healthcare Delivery Organizations’ (HDO) ability to defend against their most concerning threats. In addition, human error and resource constraints are compounding these challenges to aggravate an already difficult situation.

In this environment, what’s the best way for HDOs protect their care delivery systems to ensure patient welfare is never at risk? By adopting the SonicWall Boundless Cybersecurity approach, HDOs can stop worrying about a breach and concentrate on their more important mission: providing quality care and better clinical outcomes for their patients.

Because of the unique nature of healthcare’s critical infrastructure, the diverse roles of its personnel, and the demand for anytime, anywhere access to medical records, protecting data and computer systems is a complex mission. So, when security risks increase in every threat category, healthcare organizations must establish a boundless defense-in-depth approach that they can depend on when providing safe, reliable and uninterrupted patient care. The SonicWall Boundless Cybersecurity approach maps into healthcare cybersecurity three fundamental care-critical missions guided by the Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability (CIA) Triad security model as the standard for:

  • Safeguarding the confidentiality and privacy of personal health information (PHI) against misuse.
  • Protecting the integrity of electronic health records (EHR) for patient safety.
  • Ensuring the availability of critical infrastructure and business operations with a defense in depth security approach.
