How to find Healthcare IT services in NZ

Healthcare is one of the most data-driven industries and also one of the biggest producers of sensitive information. This combination creates an ever-increasing need for data security and an innovative software system. However, keeping up to date with new technology as we all know is a difficult business and one that is quite costly. 

 

So how do you maintain and manage an up to date healthcare IT system without compromising your data and exhausting your resources at the same time? By letting the experts deal with it of course. Outsourcing your healthcare IT services to a managed service provider (MSP) would be a healthier choice in the long run. 

 

Healthcare IT services an MSP provides,

  • Managed Security Services (MSS)
  • Managed Cloud Infrastructure Services (MCIS)
  • Managed IT Services (MIT)

 

Managed Security Services (MSS)

Healthcare most targeted industry for cyberattacks

The healthcare industry suffered the most number of global cyber attacks in 2021 with most of these attacks being ransomware. New Zealand has seen its fair share of cybercrime within the healthcare sector, with the attack on the Waikato DHB being one of the most notable.

 

But, why do cybercriminals target healthcare? Patient data containing personal and financial data can be used for fraudulent billing and blackmail. Due to this, hackers can sell this data for a lot of money on the black market. Your medical data is reportedly 10 times more valuable than your credit card number on the black market.

 

How to secure patient data with Managed Security Services (MSS)
