No industry is immune to hacking. In this digital age, no organisation can be considered as entirely safe from cybercriminals. As organisations invest in transformational technologies to streamline operations, maximise efficiencies and increase open communications, they are also introducing new gateways for criminals to enter their systems. According to IDC Health Insights 2017, it is predicted that by 2021, the first US$1 million class-action lawsuit against a medical device manufacturer will be filed for negligence due to a cyberattack that led to the death of at least 25 patients connected to a network while in the hospital and the latest example of healthcare facilities falling victim to cyberattacks was the ‘WannaCry’ attack on the National Healthcare System in the UK.

The internet of things is growing rapidly, and IoT-enabled devices are beginning to appear in all aspects of our lives. This not only impacts consumers, but also enterprises, as it is expected that over 50% of all organizations will have some form of IoT in operation in 2019. The number of IoT-connected devices has risen exponentially, and that growth shows no sign of slowing as Gartner forecasts that more than 20 billion internet-connected appliances and machines will be in use by 2020 — a number that, even now, has surpassed the world’s population. With more and more companies developing internet-enabled devices ranging from doorbells and security cameras to refrigerators and thermostats, it comes as little surprise that threat actors are discovering new vulnerabilities and developing new ways to exploit them.
