The attack surface, also known by some as the attack surface area, is the digital part of an organisation that is the most vulnerable to hacking and other hostile cyber threats. If a cybercriminal somehow gets access into the data network or database of an organisation, they can increase this surface area. Arguably, healthcare is a field that needs to minimise attack surface area the most as there are thousands of sensitive and confidential public health and patient information within their systems and archives.

 

 

 

Some of the solutions to minimise the attack surface and optimise the data security of healthcare-based organisations are enlisted here:

1)    Detecting network blind spots

CISOs within a hospital or other healthcare centres must look for network blind spots, files, folders, databases, or network areas that are currently overlooked to reduce the attack surface across such areas. Once discovered, they must use or upgrade their data security infrastructure to protect such blind spots.

2)    Using intelligent firewalls

Every device, whether it is used for data entry or advanced healthcare operation automation, must be protected with intelligent firewall systems that carry out network behavioural analysis from time to time for such devices and protect them from hard-to-detect threats.

3)    Optimizing the IAM of healthcare devices and files

IAM is essential in healthcare as only the people responsible for a given patient must have access to view their files. For ensuring this, hospitals must use context aware IAM solutions that only allow certain users at certain times and for certain reasons to view a part of or the complete data in such files.
