|Published: January 1, 2021||Content info: 145 Pages||
The healthcare cybersecurity market registered a CAGR of 15.6% over the forecast period 2021 - 2026. While cyber-attacks are the principal factor amongst the drivers of growth in the healthcare cybersecurity market, and data breaches might be in the run. The increasing number of healthcare institutions are expected to take to these cybersecurity solutions to protect patient data. Due to digital transformation, the healthcare industry is witnessing a shift in the operational process of information security. As per 2019 Mid-Year Data Breach Barometer Report, 31,611,235 healthcare records were exposed between January 2019 and June 2019, which was double the number of data breaches in 2018. According to the Cost of Data Breach Report 2019, this has caused the healthcare industry the highest mitigation cost of USD 6.45 million. Healthcare infrastructure that is often limited to legacy systems is mostly outdated and vulnerable to attacks, which are identified to be the major reasons for the high number of data breaches in the domain.
Hospitals to Drive the Healthcare Cyber Security Market
North America to Dominate the Market
The healthcare industry is one of the most regulated industry in the United States, due to privacy and security concerns associated with digital patient records. Regulations, such as Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, are ensuring steady growth in the penetration rates of cybersecurity solutions in the country's healthcare sector.
Recently, in March 2019, over 12 healthcare sector companies and groups submitted a proposal to the FDA for updating the guidelines for the cybersecurity of premarket medical devices. Initiatives, such as these are expected to further increase the adoption of cyber security in the country's healthcare sector. Healthcare organizations, across the United States, are at the forefront of cyber attacks and threats, which is continually compromising patient security. The 2019 HIMSS Cybersecurity Survey revealed that most of the incidents are caused by bad actors, who use e-mail to penetrate the systems.
The HIPAA estimates that in the month of March 2019, approximately 1 million people in the United States had their medical files exposed in data breaches. This is directly responsible for an exponential increase in data breach costs, where the average cost of a data breach is USD 8.19 million per record. Some vulnerabilities inadvertently enter the devices, software, and servers or patches are other driving factors for the cybersecurity market. In the case of GE Aestiva and Aespire Anesthesia devices, which are used in the US hospitals, an improper authentication vulnerability was identified in June 2019, which could allow a remote attacker to modify the parameters of a vulnerable device and silence the alarm system.
Companies are rolling out innovative products to safeguard patient data. For instance, Cisco released the latest version of the "Cisco Umbrella" in 2018 and deployed it in the University of Kansas Hospital to protect the medical device and financial information from ransomware. The proliferation of IoT medical devices demands threat prevention methods. Cadula, a California-based medical IoT security company, and Prima Healthcare partnered in April 2019 to deploy cybersecurity solutions for biomedical devices, across hospitals in the United States.
