The Importance Of Attack Surface Management For Industries: Health

The healthcare sector must remain at the forefront of technological advancements. While embracing innovation can lead to growth and broader reach, it may expose healthcare organizations to increased vulnerabilities. The healthcare industry handles sensitive data, such as company records, patient information, and financial data, making it a prime target for cyberattacks.

This ThreatMon report aims to explore prevalent threats faced by the healthcare sector and assess their potential impact. It underscores the importance of maintaining robust cybersecurity measures while embracing technological advancements. 

Key findings include:

  • "Attack surface" refers to all the potential avenues through which an attacker could gain unauthorized access to a system, network, or application. 
  • It encompasses all digital assets and exposures that an attacker could exploit to leverage weaknesses or vulnerabilities.
  • When the attack surface becomes too vast and unmanageable, organizations can become highly susceptible to cyberattacks, resulting in significant damage. 
  • By implementing ASM, organizations can regain control over their expanding attack surfaces.
  • The report will provide strategies to better prepare the healthcare industry against cyber threats and guidance on defending the attack surface to mitigate potential risks.
