Hacked! Medical Systems at Risk

Setup

A cyberattack can disrupt a hospital’s oxygen supply, disable cancer-fighting radiation therapy, divert emergency vehicles, and force surgeries to be canceled.

Designing security into medical systems and devices and making “cyber hygiene” a hospital priority are essential to harden hospital infrastructure.
