Do you recognize these challenges?
IoT has brought many advantages to the healthcare sector including, remote monitoring solutions, automated treatment devices and real-time location systems providing benefits in terms of lower costs, better patient experience, better management of medicine and drug supplies and reduced waste.
IoT comes with security challenges though and organizations could be heavily fined under EU's Network and Information Systems (NIS) directive if they fail to implement robust cybersecurity measures. Healthcare IoT security challenges include:
- Ensuring the cyberattacks in the form of e.g. unauthorized access to medical records, drug dosage tampering or equipment sabotage are not possible
- Complying with the tight national healthcare regulations
How does it work?
Public-Key Infrastructure (PKI) technology is a well-fit for the challenges faced in healthcare IoT and helps secure the healthcare digital transformation. Giving trusted identities to the IoT connected medical equipment devices provides end-to-end security between the devices to help guarantee trustworthiness and high availability of the medical IoT system.
Nexus Smart ID and the GO IoT service based on it, are based on mature, scalable, highly reliable, continuously tested and maintained products. The multi-CA solution helps you adapt the PKI hierarchy and request certificates via standard protocols. Nexus' solution offers administration, reporting and automation features and a solid track record.
New IoT research project aims to provide trusted high-quality elderly care
SecureCare aims to design, implement, and deploy a smart-healthcare system for citizens – elderly as well as younger and healthier – that can be used as a model and replicated on a large scale.
By equipping the rooms of care-needing people with internet-connected sensors, it’s possible to provide much better care at a much lower cost – the hard part is making the internet of things (IoT) applications secure. Therefore, all internet-connected sensors are secured by a unique digital identity, based on public key infrastructure (PKI) technology.
Nexus’ platform for IoT PKI has the following key benefits:
