While it is appropriate, during a pandemic, to put patient and staff health and safety ahead of issues like cyber security, recent threat intelligence shows that cyber-crime is on the rise. Due to increasing risks, healthcare organizations need to put cyber security protocols in place for the next three phases of the pandemic – resilience, recovery and new reality. In this paper, we provide guidance on how to:

  • Increase awareness of security and privacy issues associated with new working models
  • Address security “deficits” introduced during the resilience phase
  • Redesign security target operating and delivery models for the longer term
  • Harness machine learning and artificial intelligence to gain continuous control monitoring and automated response
  • And more.
