“Institutions and organizations that are on the front-line in battling the pandemic and beyond are under pressure from multiple fronts. On the one hand, they have to handle cases while
ensuring the delivery of optimal patient care routines, on the other they have to also battle
enemies lurking in cyberspace. Obsolete medical tech, poor cyber hygiene, and lack of understanding of the signicance of cyber threats are just some of the challenges that healthcare

interconnected systems that link doctors’ oces, hospitals, insurance companies, suppliers, and
other components of the healthcare network. “
