Managing Hardware Related Risks in Healthcare

Managing Hardware Related Risks in Healthcare

The healthcare industry is a vital component of a nation’s critical infrastructure. The various entities that make up the healthcare sector perform tasks ranging from day-to-day activities to life-saving operations. But while the majority of us depend on the industry for our well-being, malicious cyber actors view healthcare delivery organizations (HDOs) as attractive targets. From their mass data collection to their low tolerance for downtime, HDOs are the perfect victims. Further, as the COVID pandemic overwhelmed the industry, several new vulnerabilities arose, which cybercriminals exploited.

Despite the industry’s high susceptibility to cyberattacks, HDOs tend to undertake a weak approach to cybersecurity. The lack of sufficient measures often stems from budgetary constraints and competing priorities. But, for many HDOs, the main cost of cybersecurity is its disruptiveness; additional barriers and protocols take time away from providing patient care. Nevertheless, with the industry so reliant on technology, cybersecurity has a direct effect on patient care.

Sepio Systems Hardware Access Control HAC-1, provides 100% hardware device visibility for critical infrastructure.

Moreover, HAC-1 enables Hardware Access Control by setting rules based on the devices characteristics.

Additionally, HAC-1 instantly detects any devices which breach the set rules and automatically block them to prevent malicious attacks.

The idea is to Verify and then Trust that those assets are what they say they are.

Sepio Systems HAC-1 brings the ultimate solution to zero trust adoption by providing 100% hardware device visibility.

With greater visibility, the zero-trust architecture can grant access decisions with complete information.

Thus, enhancing the enterprise’s protection within, and outside of, its traditional perimeters.

Further, the Hardware Access Control capabilities of HAC-1, block Rogue Devices as soon as they are detected

Lastly, HAC-1 stop an attack at the first instance, not even allowing such devices to make network access requests.

Critical infrastructure protects the nation, and HAC-1 is here to protect.

Embracing Zero Trust Hardware Access in critical infrastructure is key.
