MARKET DRIVERS

The growing healthcare data worldwide and the increasing number of cyberattacks in the healthcare industry propel the global healthcare cybersecurity market growth.

The healthcare industry is responsible for 30% of the data being generated worldwide across all industries on a daily basis and this industry has also been experiencing numerous cyber-attacks and data theft incidents every year, which has fuelled the need for healthcare cybersecurity solutions. According to the data published by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services report, 45 million in 2021, 34 million in 2020 and 14 million in 2018 were impacted by healthcare cyber-attacks. According to the Data Breach Barometer report, there were 31,611,235 healthcare records exposed in 2019; it is double compared to 2018. Due to such incidents, the healthcare industry has been facing severe financial damage and considering the same, several healthcare organizations have been using cybersecurity solutions to protect PII, PHI, and other essential data adhering to primary security criteria and HIPAA compliance guidelines for the improvement of best practices to be followed with security audits. These include secure communication, data protection, authentication, and authorization, and staff security training. To prevent unauthorized data access and modification, communication across devices and services is secured, called secure communication. Data Protection involves storing data encryption to prevent data breach attacks. Restricted Network Access and its control are installed by appropriate organizational authorities to protect system services, Network access, and applications. Authentication and Authorization are implementing a firm password policy for a robust and secure authentication process that helps restrict access without proper authentication. Staff Security Training involves updating systems and services for fixed vulnerabilities and training and education for Cybersecurity for all staff responsible for protecting patient data.

The growing number of cybercrime cases in the healthcare sector, such as data stealing, mining, and thefts are further promoting the growth of the healthcare cybersecurity market.

An estimated 847,376 cybercrime cases were registered in 2021, which is 7% up from 2020, according to the FBI's Internet Crime Report 2021. Government initiatives to help cybersecurity systems and tighten them play an essential role in promoting the market's growth rate. Ransomware and malware are frequently heard in medical data thefts and hacking. Basic security controls like event response systems, data loss prevention, antivirus, mobile device management, data recovery, backup, email gateway, security awareness, same encryption, firewall, etc., help improve Cybersecurity in healthcare. Advanced security controls such as network fragmentation, business continuity, anti-theft devices, disaster recovery programs, connection testing, digital forensics, and others are much more advanced in helping the healthcare sector improve Cybersecurity. Hence, healthcare professionals have adopted upgraded cybersecurity systems, which augments market growth. In addition, the newly introduced telemedicine consulting and other online platforms for treating chronic disease patients are propelling the growth of the healthcare cybersecurity market.

In addition, stringent regulations for healthcare organizations for the protection of patient data, rising adoption of cloud computing in healthcare, and growing awareness among healthcare organizations regarding the importance of cyber security and the potential risks of cyber-attacks fuel the market’s growth rate. Furthermore, the rising adoption of electronic health records (EHRs) and telemedicine technologies, the growing volume of sensitive patient data and personal health information (PHI) stored electronically, the high cost of data breaches and reputational damage for healthcare organizations, the emergence of new threats such as ransomware, phishing, and social engineering attacks and the growing number of healthcare devices and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies support the growth rate of the healthcare cybersecurity market.

MARKET RESTRAINTS

Poor awareness among healthcare organizations regarding the potential benefits of healthcare cybersecurity in undeveloped and developing countries, the scarcity of skilled IT professionals, and the high costs associated with healthcare cybersecurity software majorly hamper the market's growth rate. In addition, poor support from government authorities in some countries, limited IT budgets and resources for cybersecurity in healthcare organizations, resistance to change and reluctance to adopt new cybersecurity technologies and solutions hinder market growth. Difficulty in keeping up with rapidly evolving cybersecurity threats and technologies and challenges in integrating cybersecurity with clinical workflows and processes further inhibit the growth rate of the healthcare cybersecurity market.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Healthcare Cybersecurity Market

The COVID-19 pandemic has fuelled the growth of the healthcare cybersecurity market. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the adoption of telemedicine and digital health technologies has increased tremendously due to government measures such as social distancing and lockdowns. At the same time, the number of cyber-attacks targeting healthcare organizations has also increased, further resulting in the growing demand for healthcare cybersecurity solutions. Furthermore, many healthcare workers have shifted to working remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic due to the restrictions imposed, such as social distancing and travel bans and this has resulted in an increasing number of cybersecurity challenges as healthcare workers have accessed sensitive data from unsecured networks and devices and shown a favorable impact on the healthcare cybersecurity market growth. In addition, the adoption of digital transformation in the healthcare industry, the demand for identity and access management solutions, and awareness of cybersecurity risks among healthcare organizations have grown significantly, leading to the increased demand for cybersecurity solutions. Likewise, the COVID-19 pandemic has favored the healthcare cybersecurity market.
