Cybersecurity for the Healthcare Industry

The healthcare industry is increasingly relying upon internet-connected devices and solutions to improve patient care, organizational efficiency, speed of crisis response, and much more. The emergence of telemedicine, digital health records, internet-connected medical devices, patient wellness apps, and an increasing amount of third parties entering the health supply chain has created many benefits but has also exposed the industry to vulnerabilities that cybercriminals regularly attempt to exploit. 

For the Healthcare and Pharma industries, the challenges are continually multiplying. Our preferred solution is Darktrace Enterprise Immune System. 

The Darktrace Enterprise Immune System is a self-learning cyber AI technology that detects novel attacks and insider threats at an early stage.

Modeled on the human immune system, the Darktrace Enterprise Immune System learns and understands ‘self’ for everyone and everything in the business, and can spot the subtle signals of an advanced attack — without relying on rules, signatures, or prior assumptions.

The Darktrack Enterprise Immune System uses unsupervised machine learning and AI to understand all about your organization. Observing your users and devices, cloud containers and workflows, it learns ‘on the job’ what is normal for your organization.

Unlike traditional approaches that rely on blacklists, rules and signatures, the immune system approach learns from your data – forming a bespoke and evolving understanding of your digital environments. This unique approach enables Darktrace to detect the most sophisticated and stealthy cyber-threats that other tools miss.

Whether a new strain of ransomware or an emerging insider attack, the Enterprise Immune System detects the threat at its earliest stages.

Cyberthreats can emerge anywhere – in your cloud or on SaaS, via email, or on IoT devices on your network.

The Darktrace Enterprise Immune System shines a light into all these environments, including Salesforce, Office 365 & SharePoint, AWS and Microsoft Azure.

This means that organizations benefit from a unified view of their entire digital estate – not just part of it – and can tackle emerging threats quickly.
