There’s a bit of a paradox in the US health system. While healthcare data is valuable and highly sensitive, much of the existing IT infrastructure in the healthcare system is old and vulnerable. This issue is now top of mind thanks to the recent WannaCry ransomware hack that crippled the UK’s National Health Service. And, while this time it was patient data, next time it could be life-sustaining devices and the stakes could be even higher.

We used CB Insights data to put together a list of cybersecurity companies focused primarily on healthcare that are trying to combat this issue.
