2020 was a crazy year. Cyberattacks seemed to increase by the second, as hackers specifically began to target healthcare companies. As I noted in some earlier blogs, malicious cyberattacks on medical devices in 2020 had devastating consequences that caused patients to lose confidence. And with the COVID-19 pandemic continuing to surge with no end in sight, the challenges that connected healthcare companies will face in 2021 will only increase.

As a result of these challenges, the FDA recently warned that medical devices must improve security to achieve compliance with constantly changing regulations, which are getting increasingly complex. Innovation is amazing and essential, but every technical advance creates new opportunities for hackers to wreak havoc. Hospitals are particularly vulnerable at this time because they are overwhelmed by COVID-19, making it much easier to compromise a hospital’s computer networks and medical devices. So how can those in the healthcare value chain community be certain that their defenses against a growing range of intensifying cyberattacks are as strong as possible?
