Why is IoT Security So Critical to Healthcare?

The Internet of Things (IoT) is composed of countless online connections. And while these connected IoT devices promise so many exciting benefits, the “brave new world” of IoT can also result in new vulnerabilities for cyberattackers to compromise an organization’s infrastructure. And nowhere are these security concerns more critical than in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries.

At first glance, this might seem like a no-brainer. In today’s day and age, you would think every healthcare organization would have some sort of security infrastructure in place for their IoT solutions. But even though most have strong IT security measures in place when it comes to information systems, traditional cybersecurity doesn’t always “walk the walk” when it comes to the IoT.
