China Academy of Information and Communications Technology released the “Research Report on Medical Internet of Things Security (2021)”

With the implementation of the “Healthy China” strategy, innovative practices such as “smart hospitals” and “smart diagnosis and treatment” have played an important supporting role in promoting the intelligent transformation of the medical and health industry. The wide application of a new generation of information technology represented by the Internet of Things technology in the medical and health field has promoted the further development of smart medical care, enabling medical data to play a greater value in the process of diagnosis and treatment.

Based on the urgent needs of the intelligent development of the medical and health industry, the application of the medical Internet of Things has spread all over the medical industry. Multiple types and models of IoMT equipment are distributed in multiple departments, and equipment manufacturers have various remote operation and maintenance methods, resulting in an increase in the risk exposure area, and the original security protection methods are difficult to deal with. The resulting medical network security risks and challenges are increasing day by day . Hackers are increasingly targeting public medical institutions in our country. Overall, the cybersecurity situation of medical institutions in our country is not optimistic. Especially during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, cyberattacks and data theft incidents in medical institutions surged, causing not only economic losses but also risks to the health of patients. In order to promote the healthy development of the Medical Internet of Things and its ecosystem, and clarify the security risks currently faced by the Medical Internet of Things, the Security Research Institute of the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology and Sangfor Technology Co., Ltd. jointly researched and compiled the “Medical Internet of Things Security Research Report (2021″). year)”.

This report points out the possible security risks that IoMT devices may face in the post-epidemic era through the classification and analysis of typical business scenarios of the medical Internet of Things and the scientific judgment on the development of the medical Internet of Things industry, and further discusses how to build a security protection strategy framework for the medical Internet of Things. This paper puts forward the direction and suggestions for the security development of the medical Internet of Things, and provides a reference for the security planning related to the IoMT equipment in medical institutions.
