In our latest White paper, Intercede and Device Authority investigate how the exponential growth of telemedicine by healthcare systems during the Covid pandemic has left them open to potential cyberattacks.
Healthcare systems have been utilising Internet of Medical Things devices to allow staff to remotely monitor vital signs such as heart rate, respiratory rate, oxygen saturation and blood pressure, that have created huge benefits for the healthcare industry but opened them up to cyber risks they are not presently prepared for.
Anywhere data must be kept private, such as healthcare, or systems protected, such as critical national infrastructure, needs to be able to trust the devices and the people who access them. IoT devices demand a device-centric identity model which is quite different from a human / user centric model. Where device trust, data trust and operationalizing trust at scale is a fundamental challenge.
The way to solve this problem and help the healthcare industry capitalize on the opportunities presented by telemedicine is by working together. Intercede and Device Authority show in the Whitepaper that by taking a holistic approach you can provide an end-to-end solution, securing the devices and protecting access to data by utilising both of their systems, MyID and KeyScaler.
Intercede Chief Product Officer, Allen Storey said: “Both leaders in their fields, Device Authority brings the device ID expertise and Intercede the Person ID knowledge. By collaborating, a combined solution brings device trust, data trust, user trust and end to end security, to a fragmented and critically important sector.”
Darron Antill, CEO of Device Authority commented, “The proliferation of non-human entities and machines in various guises is transforming the modern workplace. As they are the new network perimeter, machine identity management is becoming increasingly important, as is the identity lifecycle management of medical devices in modern healthcare practises and workplaces. Without this, you cannot have the complete device or data trust that is critical for patient safety and data compliance required in the IoMT sector.”
