Cyber attacks in the health sector
A new survey of Hessian hospitals conducted by the Hessian Ministry of Social Affairs shows that IT security in health care is an extremely serious topic. This showed that every fourth hospital in Hesse alone was affected by a cyber attack. The ministry sees a considerable need for investment in IT security at many clinics. That this cannot be limited to a single federal state seems logical. IT security is and remains more important than ever and a huge challenge.
Stolen or weak passwords are now the cause of a hack in 81 percent of all cases; in 2016 it was "only" about 60 percent. Passwords are no longer enough to protect corporate networks. Multi-factor authentication (MFA) to verify identity significantly reduces the risk of an attack and secures your network and cloud environments.
The open source-based KeyIdentity MFA platform "LinOTP" provides a quick remedy; this complies with all current security standards for one-time password authentication (OTP). LinOTP's open source core is continuously enhanced by experienced IT security experts and enriched with valuable features to always meet the latest security requirements. The open source core allows the software to be audited at any time so that cryptographic backdoors such as "Nobody-but-us" (NOBUS) can be excluded. In addition, there is no need for software escrows, as the code is visible.
