The Biggest Threats Keeping Healthcare Executives Up at Night

The healthcare industry is a target for malicious attackers given the type of data that providers hold. In talking with our healthcare customer executives, here’s what they say are the biggest threats keeping them up at night:

  • The evolving threat landscape – what hackers are actually doing
  • New attack techniques cyber criminals are adapting
  • How to respond with innovative controls in a timely enough manner to prevent or mitigate those risks

It’s a challenge across the industry to ensure you have adequate data security controls as well as access management controls to prevent criminals from gaining access.

The healthcare industry is still driven by compliance. Providers look at the compliance regulations to dictate what security must be in place. Whereas if you look at financial services, they’ve been practicing a risk-based approach for several years now. That’s really where the healthcare industry needs to go, and where many of our customers have seen amazing results.

Stay Ahead of Attackers with Model Driven Security

Model driven security is essentially the use of math and algorithms to make real time security control decisions instead of relying on humans to enter those control changes into a console. Behavior based security analytics powered by Machine Learning is the definition of model driven security.

One example of why model driven security is needed: a recent large organization had 15,000 servers taken down in under 90 seconds. There are no people in this world that can respond fast enough to mitigate those sorts of attacks.

You need to be able to move at machine speed, and that is why our customers are moving to model driven security because it gives them a machine-based reaction time to critical threats.
