“This session demonstrates how to secure a picture archiving and communication system ecosystem in healthcare delivery organizations (HDOs). The PACS Use Case, developed in collaboration with health information technology (IT) vendors at the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE), covers methods for providing increased security benefits while minimizing the impact and availability to a PACS and other components. The outcome results in a repeatable, scalable example implementation solution that HDOs can integrate into their current infrastructures. Understanding the importance of improving control and management of a PACS can limit exposures to a threat vector that could act as a point where an attack may be performed or serve as a pivot point into an integrated healthcare information system, thereby improving an HDO’s cybersecurity posture.”
