Cyber Security
Saves Lives

A cyber attack on a hospital or healthcare facility is often devastating. In some scenarios, the aftermath of an incident can even be a matter of life or death for your patients.

Unfortunately, attacks on healthcare in Belgium, Luxembourg and the rest of the world are on the rise:

  • Worldwide, 57% of healthcare organizations have recently been hit by ransomware
  • 25% had to completely stop their operations; 60% suffered from disruptions
  • Recovery after an incident takes days (56%) or even weeks (24%)

Can you imagine this happening in your hospital?

Key cybersecurity challenges for healthcare

Phishing expand_more

The #1 attack vector in healthcare

Phishing is still the preferred method of attack by hackers. Most phishing campaigns are spread through emails containing malicious links. The messages in these mails are very convincing, often related to a well-known medical problem to encourage the recipient to click on the link.

In addition, the growing number of endpoints (mobile devices, IoT applications and connected medical devices) increases the attack surface of phishing campaigns, making central visibility essential to keep your patient data safe.

Ransomware Attacks expand_more

The biggest threat to your organization

Stolen data, breached systems, hijacked accounts … In healthcare, ransomware attacks have a direct impact on the real world. In the worst cases, system failures can lead to cancelled operations, putting patients’ lives at risk. Recovery from an incident can take a long time.

Protection against ransomware not only minimizes the risk of having to pay ransom, but also increases compliance and reduces reputational damage to your organization.

Data Breaches expand_more

Protect your patients’ valuable data

Whether your patient information resides on the network, in the cloud/data center, or on your devices/endpoints, you need central visibility to keep your data safe and private. The solution is a cybersecurity platform that allows you to consolidate visibility, analysis and controls.

Lack of Knowledge & Resources expand_more

Prevention is better than cure

A small IT team, lack of knowledge & resources, a dispersed environment… Most healthcare institutions struggle with the same issues. That’s why automation is a vital asset for your cyber security.

An Extended Detection & Response solution consolidates your security tools and helps you navigate alerts in your day-to-day operations. It automatically identifies advanced malware and suspicious network activity, ensuring your IT team is optimally equipped to respond before a threat can become a problem.

UZ Brussel hospital secures health data & cloud applications

Automatically connecting values from blood pressure monitors to the ERP; monitoring patients at home using 5G connectivity; the exponential growth of sensors and the Internet of Things (IoT) ... As one of the leading hospitals in Belgium, UZ Brussel understands the potential of digital transformation and automation. But they also know these innovations have major implications for IT security & privacy.

The hospital turned to Trend Micro and opted for a bundle of solutions to secure their environment. UZ Brussel is now better protected, allowing their IT team to focus on core tasks.

Get ready for NIS2

An updated version of the NIS2 directive will be implemented starting in 2025. This will have a huge impact on the healthcare industry, as the security regulation targets all critical services, including hospitals and healthcare facilities. To be compliant, your organization will need a variety of measures such as detection & response, awareness training and remediation plans.

To help you prepare, we have written a blog on NIS2 and the implications for your organization.
