But many healthcare organizations have literally thousands of connected medical devices - from infusion pumps to heart monitors - used in patient treatment that can be vulnerable, opening the door to a broader cyberattack. Meanwhile, the internet of things, including consumer wearables and other devices, is adding to the challenges of keeping data secure and patients safe.
