Failing IoT security measures have led to a resurgence of the Cornflicker worm, impacting IoT connected healthcare devices and others — and that’s not going to cut it in today’s internet-driven, everything-connected world. IoT devices, in the healthcare world and elsewhere, must treated just as carefully as employee computers, servers, and other devices. They must be connected to network security, continuously monitored and scanned, maintained by way of security patches, and updated on a regular basis. There should be no halfway measures here, in the healthcare industry or otherwise — security of IoT connected devices is too important to business operations and business continuity.
