With Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) becoming extremely popular across various industries, the healthcare organizations have also understood the prospective of these technologies. The healthcare sector has realized that AI apps help provide greater insight into data and better patient care. And, as the health IT infrastructure tools evolve, AI can be utilized to protect organizations against cyber attacks by foretelling vulnerabilities.

However, healthcare sectors need to look into their health IT infrastructure to understand and perceive how Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning will fit and operate in their IT ecosystem. Organizations ought to ensure they understand how Artificial Intelligence can be utilized for threat intelligence. 

According to IEEE Member and Integral Partners Director of Information Security Services, Kayne McGladrey, healthcare sectors embody “Lean IT” as they are not in the cybersecurity line of business.

If a healthcare organization experiences a cyberattack, AI cybersecurity tools can provide informed, real-time recommendations for these attacks. Healthcare IT cannot be added to the already existing IT infrastructure, rather organizations have to examine their existing infrastructure and analyze how to implement in the best way. And, to implement AI, healthcare organizations have to first understand how their present IT security infrastructure will grasp the inclusion of AI. Once the implementation is arranged and planned appropriately, these healthcare sectors can utilize AI to help protect their network.
