Healthcare Cyber Security Market Trends



  • An increase in healthcare cyber-attacks and regulatory policies to drive market growth


The rapidly increasing number of data breaches in the healthcare industry is driving the demand for cyber healthcare security. For example, the average data breach cost in the healthcare industry was USD 9.23 million, as per IBM's Cost of a Data Breach Report published in 2021. In addition, the Secretary of the United States Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) Breach of Unsecured Protected Health Information outlines nearly 592 breaches of un-secured protected patient data that affected more than 500 individuals in the previous two years that the Office is investigating for Civil Rights.


Medical data is ten to twenty times more valuable than credit card or banking information, making healthcare an appealing target for cybercriminals. In addition, the recent digital transformation of healthcare has increased the frequency of cyber-attacks. For example, the recent cyber-attacks on Ireland's State Health Department and Health Service Executive (HSE) were affected by a human-operated 'Conti' ransomware attack, severely disabled numerous HSE systems and forced the shutdown of the majority of the HSE's other systems. These factors are propelling the healthcare cyber security market revenue forward.


The increased volume of cyber-threat matrices and attacks due to inadequate security protocols is a crucial concern for the healthcare sector. It is further expected to boost the adoption of security solutions. This has enabled the deployment of government policies and steps to safeguard patient information from data breaches, incentivizing healthcare organizations to use highly developed healthcare cyber security solutions to protect their medical and healthcare data. For example, the United States government enacted the ‘Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)’ to encourage healthcare institutions to keep patient data private and confidential. These factors will also help to drive the market CAGR of healthcare cyber security in the upcoming years.


Healthcare Cyber Security Market Segment Insights


Healthcare Cyber Security Threat Type Insights


The market segmentation of healthcare cyber security, based on threat type, includes malware, distributed denial-of-service (DDOS), and advanced persistent threat (APT). The malware segment held the majority share in 2022, contributing around ~40-43% to the  healthcare cyber security market revenue. There are numerous cybersecurity issues in the healthcare industry. Due to hackers' awareness of and preference for ransomware, ransomware attacks are the most common form of malware. An estimated 92 healthcare organizations in the United States experienced ransomware attacks in 2020, leading to average ransom demands of USD 169,446 and earning criminals USD 15.6 million in ransom from the country's healthcare sector. In addition, the malware variant targeted 560 healthcare facilities in 2020, according to Emsisoft. Ransomware disables systems like clinical, employee, and financial data systems, health record database systems, and medical devices until the victim pays the ransom. It also blocks access to vital healthcare data.


Healthcare Cyber Security Solution Type Insights


The  healthcare cyber security market segmentation, based on solution type, includes antivirus & antimalware, risk & compliance management, security information & event management, DDOS mitigation, and identity & access management. The risk & compliance management segment dominated the market in 2022 and is projected to be the faster-growing segment during the forecast period, 2022-2030. Healthcare risk & compliance management determines, assesses, and implements policies and procedures to protect critical assets from potential threats. Healthcare organizations must recognize proper risk management as it is essential to the industry due to the sensitive nature of healthcare data. Healthcare risk management is critical since the industry is rapidly changing owing to new medical technologies and rising privacy concerns about patient data.

Further, the antivirus & antimalware segment is the fastest-growing  healthcare cyber security industry. It is attributed to an increase in the number of malware attacks in the healthcare sector, which can disrupt hospital networks and negatively impact patient care. With machine learning and customized spear-phishing emails, malware attacks in healthcare organizations have recently become more sophisticated. Hospital computers are at various levels of risk depending on the types of malwares and their level of malice. The healthcare industry is the one that is most vulnerable to cyberattacks due to the crucial data it controls, the rising level of digitization, and the increasing use of the internet, thereby supporting the healthcare cyber security market growth.


Healthcare Cyber Security End User Insights


End users have bifurcated the  healthcare cyber security market data into hospitals & clinics, pharmaceuticals & biotechnology industries, health insurance companies, and medical devices companies. The hospitals & clinics segment dominated the market in 2022 and is projected to be the faster-growing segment during the forecast period 2022-2030. Hospitals are particularly vulnerable to cyberattacks as they store large amounts of patient data. A rise in these attacks also co-occurred as the pandemic jeopardized private information and health care. In the case of Blackbaud, a cloud technology provider suffered a security breach that exposed patient data from 46 hospitals and health organizations in 2021. Hospitals may be better able to anticipate and handle these risks if they incorporate healthcare cyber security into their current frameworks for governance, risk assessment, and business continuity.


Healthcare Cyber Security Regional Insights


By Region, the study provides market insights into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World. The North America Healthcare Cyber Security market accounted for USD 8.33 billion in 2022 and is expected to exhibit a significant CAGR growth during the study period. The presence of key regional players and the increased use of cyber security in healthcare organizations are the primary contributors to market growth. Increased investment in cyber security and technological advancement drives the North American market forward. A further factor contributing to market expansion is the developed healthcare infrastructure. Besides, introducing ground-breaking products to protect patient data in the healthcare sector is also fueling regional market expansion. For instance, Cisco released the most recent iteration of the 'Cisco Umbrella' in 2018. It was implemented at the University of Kansas Hospital to defend against ransomware and safeguard medical equipment and financial data.
