Hospitals have to protect mainly doctors, nurses and other staff. But it must not forget the protection of IT systems.
March 27, 2020
We all think of paramedics, doctors, nurses and other personnel who are at the forefront of the fight against COVID-19 nowadays. They need to be protected against new virus so that they can do their important work while not spreading the dangerous disease further.
Hospitals operate in a special mode, closed to ordinary patients, deploy effective protective equipment and many sophisticated methods prevent threats.
Unfortunately, the IT world, which is absolutely crucial for the operation of hospitals today, is still in danger. Unfortunately, the attackers are exploiting the current situation and focusing on the most important and thus the most vulnerable elements. This is a very serious problem, as the recent attacks on the hospitals in Benešov and Brno have shown. The attacked hospital is totally paralyzed, unable to perform its function and provide assistance to seriously ill patients.
As hospital buildings are quarantined, IT systems should also be protected by special means. In order to effectively ensure information security and availability of services, it is necessary to close the boundaries between hospital systems and the rest of the world. Only pre-selected and verified data can be passed through this barrier. This is the only way to prevent the introduction of dangerous infections into information systems.
Active protection against outside attacks is a key factor, the simplest and fastest to implement.
