A recent study shows that small and medium-sized medical technology companies are particularly vulnerable to cyberattacks. The study, part of a strategic cybersecurity development program for SMEs in Stockholm, showed that many SME generally have low risk awareness and lack a structured cybersecurity strategy.
This is a worrying development, as cyberattacks on medical technology companies can have significant consequences for the company itself, as well as for customers and suppliers. The study also shows that companies are particularly vulnerable to cyberattacks because they often handle sensitive patient information.
