More than 80 percent of healthcare organizations have experienced cyberattacks in the last year on “internet of things”-enabled devices they use or manufacture, according to a new report from international software company Irdeto.
Here are three findings from the Global Connected Industries Cybersecurity report, which surveyed 700 security leaders from the healthcare, transport, manufacturing and IT industries in the U.S., U.K., China, Germany and Japan.
1. Respondents in the healthcare sector reported more cyberattacks associated with their internet of things-connected devices than other industries: 82 percent said they had experienced a cybersecurity incident in the last year.
2. On average, those healthcare organizations that experienced an internet of things-related cyberattack in the last year said it resulted in $346,205 in losses, second only to those in the connected transport industry ($352, 639).
3. Healthcare organizations’ biggest concern regarding these cyberattacks was compromised consumer data, followed by compromised end-user safety, stolen intellectual property, brand or reputational damage and operational downtime.
