Medical Facility Cyber-Physical Attacks

  • Luis Ayala


Not only are active medical devices in the hospital building at risk of cyber-physical attack, the hospital building itself can be targeted. In the past, hospitals experienced nuisance cyber-attacks such as ransomware, website defacement, or theft of patient data. A cyber-physical attack on a hospital building has the potential to do serious physical damage to critical hospital equipment and interfere with patient care.
