IDC Survey Spotlight: Medical Device Security Update — Progress Remains Slow
This IDC Survey Spotlight is based on IDC's July 2021 U.S. IoT Decision Maker Survey, which surveyed 128 U.S. healthcare organizations that are currently focused on IoT deployment. It presents key findings from the survey regarding securing medical devices.
"Progress on securing connected medical devices by fully integrating them into the security architecture has been painfully slow, as demonstrated by comparing three IDC surveys that span seven years," stated Lynne A. Dunbrack, group vice president, Public Sector. "Securing connected medical devices is inherently complex because of the share scale of the problem, and their vulnerability is exacerbated by poor security practices."
