Cyber solutions for healthcare providers

CORVID removes human dependencies and keeps IT systems operational, so you can focus on saving lives.

The healthcare sector is trusted with confidential records, and relied on for 24/7 vital support when it's needed most. It’s no secret that resources are stretched thin, and system improvements are easily overshadowed by the day job. Estates are often outdated and full of vulnerabilities, making them a prime target for cyber attackers and easy accidental victim of wider malware campaigns.

 

Prioritise patient care

Keep operations uninterrupted by streamlining patch management to limit system vulnerabilities.

Reduce human dependencies

Protect frontline staff from malicious emails and system disruption, with intuitive email protection.

Quickly discover breaches

Limit damage and remain GDPR-compliant, with in-depth details of any data breach, no matter how big or small.

There are over 1.3 million NHS staff. Add private healthcare providers and all those who make up the supply chains, and the sector’s attack surface is monumental. We understand that if a cyber security issue arises, practices must race against the clock to mitigate adverse effects, by ensuring patient safety and data confidentiality, as well as minimising disruptions to appointments and procedures. CORVID can take this IT security burden away from your frontline staff, so they can concentrate solely on patient care.

Key questions you should be asking

  • Could you identify a data breach and pinpoint exact details of any compromise to ensure data integrity and remain compliant?
  • Can your email defences protect you against sophisticated phishing and impersonation attacks?
  • Do you know of any vulnerabilities in your IT estate, or how to check if there are any?
  • Are your computer systems up-to-date and patched regularly?
  • Can you be sure all linked systems in your supply chain are free from compromise?
  • How prepared are you for your systems to be unavailable?

How CORVID can help

We understand healthcare providers are under-resourced. Frontline workers and administrative staff work in a fast-paced environment where needs are rapidly changing, and the reliance on uninterrupted operations and sharing of information between departments is vital to patient care. Our expertise and security solutions strengthen your cyber resilience in the background, so you can continue to prioritise patient care without worrying about cyber threats.

Alleviate human dependencies

Remove the opportunity for users to make a mistake – rely on technology to instantly identify phishing, impersonation, and malicious attachments. Our multi-layered email defence solution uses the latest threat intelligence and a wide range of fraud and content checks, to determine the legitimacy of an email’s content, link, and attachment.

Detect and respond to threats

While traditional anti-virus software provides some protection, the threat landscape is ever-changing, and threat actors are finding new ways to evade traditional defences. Being able to detect and respond to cyber threats quickly is critical to remaining operational and ensuring minimal disruption to patient care and data.

Maximise vulnerability reduction

Lower the chance of an attacker compromising your network by employing automated security scanning to identify system vulnerabilities in your IT infrastructure, including unpatched software and exposed services. Using actionable intelligence, our analysts provide full, clear remediation advice on how to resolve any potential issues.

Healthcare insights

Patching up life support: why critical care is at critical risk

Keeping people alive is unquestionably more important than patching software, but unpatched software is vulnerable to exploitation, and won’t keep anyone alive if it leads to a breach of your IT systems, rendering them unavailable.

Is email security training a waste of your time?

Given the volume of high-profile cyber attacks making headlines, it’s little wonder the government is urging organisations to step up their cyber and email security training[1]. But can user training ever hope to keep pace with the constantly evolving threat landscape?

How to effectively manage, detect and respond to a data breach

78% of businesses cite cyber security as a high priority for their organisation’s senior management. While it is encouraging that this figure has risen year-on-year, generating awareness of cyber security is only one part of the issue.

"By far the most common shared factor in successful cyber attacks is people. And as the NHS has 1.3 million staff, then that is both a big risk and a massive opportunity"

Challenges you may face

Remove reliance on users

Most healthcare providers still rely on under-resourced frontline workers to spot malicious emails, essentially plugging the gaps in unsuitable cyber security strategies. Design your infrastructure so users can't bring it down, and let technology be the frontline of your cyber defences, instead of users.

Understand and mitigate cyber risk

It can seem impossible to keep up with the escalating threat landscape. Identifying vulnerabilities across your interconnected and complex IT estate is time-consuming, and knowing how to fix them is crucial to minimising risk and securing your systems and data against attacks.

Protect your systems against malware

Malware can be difficult to detect until it’s too late and the damage has already been done. You need to be able to identify and stop malware attacks before they can cause damage to your practice, patients, and the wider sector, and know how to prevent such an attack from happening again.
