Jason Crabtree, QOMPLX CEO, and co-founder wrote ‘Covid, telemedicine, and risk management transfer’ for Healthcare Global.
The use of telemedicine is on the rise, with more than a 300-fold increase from February to March of 2020. However, the security of these telehealth functions has lagged behind the increased usage.
“The expansion of telehealth functions under pandemic conditions is, therefore, a lasting shift in the cyber environment, one which provides attackers a greater opportunity to infiltrate and exploit core health and telehealth systems alike. Like all sudden shifts in the environment, however, awareness will be key to an equally agile and adaptive solution,” writes Crabtree.
