CyberMDX Releases 2020 Vision Report on Healthcare Cybersecurity

Report analyzes over a million data points to identify greatest cybersecurity threats facing healthcare


New York, NY, February 18, 2020 CyberMDX today announced the release of the company's 2020 Vision Report. Combining deep industry and cyber expertise, the report distills insights from over a million data points — collected across hundreds of facilities using the CyberMDX solution — to deliver highly impactful recommendations that empower hospitals and medical centers to quickly bolster their cybersecurity posture.

Following  a year in which the number of healthcare cyberattacks nearly tripled, the CyberMDX team undertook a project to analyze the most significant healthcare breaches from 2019. The team also made use of information collected from CyberMDX solutions in the field to paint a clearer picture of the threat landscape facing the healthcare industry today. 

Some of the key takeaways from the report include:

  • In the US, hackers find the most success targeting mid-sized or less well-known healthcare organizations outside of the nation's largest population centers
  • Four months after a vulnerability disclosure, the typical hospital will have patched 40% or fewer of their vulnerable devices
  • Medical devices are twice as likely as standard network devices to be vulnerable to Bluekeep
  • Medical devices are up to 5X more likely to be vulnerable to URGENT/11 compared to standard network devices

"To understand the future of healthcare security we must first look at what has allowed attackers to be so successful," said Jon Rabinowitz, VP of Marketing at CyberMDX. "The vast amount of data we analyzed has given us greater insight into the challenges healthcare faces as an industry, and how we can help improve cybersecurity and mitigate future breaches."
