Despite the risk in the healthcare systems IoT is going deep into the health care systems primary focus is to ensure the safety of patient. The first thing is to focus on securing the healthcare data.
A question arises by considering the above factors who is responsible for IoT security? To get started with hospitals should take steps to ensure that their environment is secure. On the other hand, hospital management should take necessary actions to secure the information of equipment’s which they are purchasing for hospital need. To be more specific any equipment that hospital adopts need to
- Securely store and transmit data
- Should accept software security updates
- Feature API’s that ensure secure connections
The above steps are very important, but hospitals should also fallow this hospital alone can’t stand to solve the problems of IoT, Device manufactures also plays a key role to solve the IoT security issue. They should develop a solution to fallow security standards and offer certified devices.
Using horizontal management platform enhanced device security management can be accomplished, this could help manufactures to achieve security of their equipment on a regular basis this platform makes end to end security possible so that manufactures could send security updates quickly. This will make sure that the data is secured that from its starting point to its destination.
Even though connected health care is combined with considerable IoT security risks, it can be reduced if hospitals device manufactures could take appropriate precautions by making a security as the first point the health sector can’t use the benefits of IoT with equivalent to patient safety.
In Internet of Thins field morals and ethics refers to social behaviour. Property rights, private use of information and accessibility are shown in most of the ethics data bases. Ethical behaviour consists of the following
ØAccess to information
ØIntegration of information
Following ethical issues have been raised in IoT field
To typically identify of the author collected data is typically hard to determine in the IoT system. there is also an obligation were patient data should no be used with out his or her concerns.
Risk is the problem which can happen in feature or not Risk management is a technique to identify, monitoring and controlling the risk can be done by some technique.
Risks can be classified into three types
