The Unhealthy Security of Healthcare
September, 2018, Qasim Ijaz, Director, Coalfire Labs
I have been involved in a number of healthcare penetration tests here at Coalfire and in my previous roles. I have hacked electronic medical records, medical devices, and most importantly, humans. From my time as a systems engineer at a medical device and systems vendor to my current role at Coalfire as a penetration tester, I have seen a few healthcare organizations grow from highly insecure to cyber-fortresses. In this blog, I will highlight the most common issues my teammates and I come across while penetration testing healthcare environments.
