Cybersecurity Services for Healthcare Industry

Healthcare organisations deal with special challenges in dynamic and complex scenarios. In the last two decades, the healthcare industry has seen large scale changes. It includes innovations in labor development, accelerated development of mergers and acquisitions and labor unions, trade-offs to expand operational efficiency and reduce costs. At the same time, the requirements for assembly development has increased. The weight of following

instructions, coupled with the prospect of competing with others makes the environment challenging. Medical care records are most important for aggressors globally because it contains sophisticated information. The hackers find social security numbers, bank data and personal health information very valuable.
While addressing these issues, always focus on delivering quality and quiet care. It means that healthcare organisations must do more with less without hesitation. At Cyberarch, we understand the value of personal health data. And to ensure information security, our experts use advanced security arrangements.

The Rise Of Healthcare Data Breaches

In terms of expanding healthcare information security, the sector also faces other unique network security challenges. It can combine treatment tool snatching and ransomware attacks, where basic machines such as X-rays, pacemakers, and life support gadgets are implanted with malware. Once introduced, this malware can move throughout the process to contaminate other devices, applications, and the complete framework. The most
worrying thing is that these attacks may cause therapeutic gadgets to malfunction, thereby endangering lives. Also, the healthcare organizations that enter the management business has a constantly changing workforce. It increases the possibility of information leakage since healthcare
professionals need the same authority to complete their work. 

To mitigate record violations in healthcare, you must be ready to face different challenges. If you do not do this, the cost of violating medical records may be high. According to the “Data Breach Cost Report”, on average, health care violations are worth more than $7.45 million in the entire industry

Advancing HIPAA Compliance Through Network Security

Under pressure to protect sensitive health statistics and compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, today’s medical institutions need to organize and conduct HIPAA Audits and get Certifications regularly. Nowadays, compliance is very challenging. At the same time, it is more important than ever. It requires healthcare companies to collect information-related records to gain control, methods of tracking activities related to electronic non-public health statistics, integrity monitoring, identity verification, and transmission security.


By conducting penetration testing, healthcare organizations can increase visibility into the effectiveness of their defenses. Additionally, by leveraging our network threat detection, healthcare systems can ensure that alerts received are for verified attacks.  


Our Identity solutions enable healthcare organizations to properly manage access to systems, devices, and applications, and ensure ongoing HIPAA compliance.

We understand the constant pressure to keep your data, patients and employees safe. Our healthcare network security and direct access to healthcare access management solutions can help you do more than just bypass HIPAA audits. It helps in full compliance by continuously monitoring and prioritising the hazards faced by the organization. Moreover, it ensures that the most suitable people have access to the right statistics at the right time
