Topic Abstract: Healthcare is a goldmine for hackers. Not just any kind of hacker though but for almost all kinds of levels. From the NOOB script kiddes sending out ransom ware emails to the advanced reverse engineer creating push to kill insulin pump and heart defibrillators exploits which can be triggered from half a kilometer away.
This industry’s cyber security cost is expected to rise from 7 billion in 2018 to 27 billion by 2026, yet from 2005 to today over 268 million records have been reported breached in the United States alone. That’s 85%.
Financial gain is the main motivator for hackers because healthcare records are highly valued for their personal, financial, and medical data. This type of information is worth roughly 50 times more than credit card or Social Security data, since it can be used for Medicare fraud – the most profitable type of identity theft.
We will look at some of the most common attacks the healthcare industry has been exposed to and a live demonstration of exploiting one of the oldest technologies that was implemented 1959 and is still being used today.
Let’s dive deep into the underground world of healthcare.
