CyberAttack: Infrastructure Guidelines to Thwart Data Thieves & Hackers

When data thieves and hackers want to break into a healthcare provider’s network, the building automation system is where they love to probe. Most hospitals have Internet accessible controls for their facilities infrastructure which gives hackers multiple entry points to steal healthcare data or create life-threatening problems. Healthcare operators along with their architects and engineers can significantly reduce their vulnerability by following a half-dozen very important guidelines.
