The evolution of malware is being fueled largely by the proliferation of IoT. According to Gartner data, there were about 8 billion connected “things” in 2017. But that number is expected to nearly triple to more than 20 billion in just the next two years, which averages out to roughly three connected devices per person on Earth. Simply put, the opportunity for cybercriminals to enter networks and steal data or hold segments (or the entirety) of the network hostage is growing at an exponential rate, with no signs of slowing down.
Watch the video in this post to hear from Fortinet’s Troy Roberts, VP of Enhanced Technologies, as he discusses the challenges facing healthcare organizations in 2018 and how to overcome them.
Digital business is transforming how organizations and individuals communicate, operate, and interact. These changes not only hold the promise for new opportunities, but also bring new risks to data, economies, and resources. Which is why Fortinet is a Gold Sponsor at this year’s IBM Think 2018, being held March 19-22 at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.
In today’s digital economy, speed and efficiency are essential. So is the ability to access data from anywhere and from any device. These demands are forcing the network to change, increasing the amount of data that networks need to manage and the number of devices connected to those networks. This is responsible for growing the potential attack surface of today’s networks.
Accelerate 18 began with a series of keynotes to a capacity crowd of Fortinet partners, sales people, and for the first time, customers. Beyond the expected executive addresses and other talks and workshops, Fortinet announced the evolution of our Security Fabric architecture – and more importantly – demonstrated how Fortinet is uniquely positioned in the industry to deliver the next generation of network security.
Get a preview of Fortinet’s presence at CoSN 2018. This year’s conference will focus on K-12’s growing use of technology and how schools can remain secure and compliant during the transition.
Digital transformation in healthcare has inspired a slew of new, advanced cyberattacks. As a result, healthcare providers must now transform how they approach network security. Learn about the expanding threat landscape and how Fortinet is ushering in this next generation of security.
Healthcare has become the second largest sector of the U.S. economy, accounting for 18% of gross domestic product (GDP) in 2017, and is rivaled only by U.S. Federal Government’s 20% share of GDP in the same year. Not surprisingly, IT spending in healthcare is keeping pace, reaching $100 billion in 2017.
Over the past few years, Fortinet has attended HIMSS to participate in conversations surrounding the direction of healthcare technology. We have contributed to and led these conversations, leveraging our cybersecurity expertise to convey the importance of securing IT investments to healthcare IT professionals. These conversations are especially poignant now, as attacks on hospitals and healthcare providers have become more impactful due to their frequency and level of sophistication.
Criminals and cyber adversaries use speed, stealth, and bots to achieve their singular goal—steal from you. But as the CISO, you must focus on two goals: Run your organization effectively and counter those adversaries. How might AI be used to fundamentally rebalance the field of play?
