The use of connected devices for enhancing healthcare services is a growing trend. This has considerably increased the attack surfaces on healthcare networks that cyber attackers can leverage to gain access to confidential information such as electronic health records (EHRs), and patient’s personal details, amongst others. This edition of Network Security TOE provides a snapshot of the advanced security solutions for protection against advanced cyber threats in the healthcare sector. It provides a guideline for the various attack surfaces within a healthcare network and basic mitigation strategies for cyber attacks. The study highlights eight innovative security solutions for comprehensive healthcare IT security.
