An Insight into the Current Security Posture of Healthcare IT: A National Security Concern
This spring, The Institute for Critical Infrastructure Technology (ICIT) sponsored a Capstone Project for students at the Heinz College at Carnegie Mellon University. As part of this project, students were tasked with conducting an assessment of the cybersecurity posture of the healthcare sector which included an analysis of threats to healthcare IT, IoT, and OT, supply chain security, emerging cybersecurity solutions, and technical and non-technical security controls to improve resiliency to the health sector. The final report was presented to current and former HHS, VA, and other private sector and ICIT experts at the 2019 Government Summit held in Washington D.C. which was done in partnership with ICIT Fellow Micro Focus Government Solutions and ICIT.
ICIT would like to acknowledge the following students for their outstanding work on this project:
