Security in healthcare

Safeguard operations with resilient architecture and military-grade security.

Security in healthcare is about more than health data safety—it's about protecting the trust of patients, clinicians, and various stakeholders while equipping organizations with the right tools to deliver care when and where it matters. At Oracle Health, we help protect customer workloads with a security-first approach across compute, network, and storage—down to the hardware.

Cybersecurity in Healthcare

It's essential to prioritize cybersecurity, particularly for healthcare organizations that handle sensitive patient information. With so much at stake, it's critical to recognize the importance of cybersecurity and take proactive measures to prevent potential breaches. In a recent discussion, two experts from Oracle emphasized the significance of areas such as ransomware resiliency, cyber-recovery, and other crucial aspects of cybersecurity.

A comprehensive approach to security and compliance

The world of healthcare cybersecurity is constantly changing. With the influx of Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) devices and the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) in healthcare, cybersecurity risks are increasing. However, Oracle can gather and analyze threat indicators and patterns from other industries and is actively incorporating this knowledge into technology for healthcare and other markets to protect them.

Traditionally, healthcare cybersecurity has focused on securing individual systems and networks. However, to address the changing landscape of threats, the healthcare industry must strengthen its security posture with more advanced and innovative solutions. As a forward-thinking software provider, we believe in using cross-industry data mining and cloud computing to create a strong defense for clinical healthcare.

Oracle Health provides a unique level of protection that extends from where data is stored to where it’s applied. We start with an assessment that helps enable us to equip customers with a plan to address their unique security needs—from protecting against malware and ransomware to identifying and isolating threats—limiting abrupt interruptions in their business operations.
