IDC Survey Spotlight: The Convergence Between Digital and Physical Security

By: Lynne DunbrackResearch Vice President


This IDC Survey Spotlight presents an analysis of the results of IDC's Global IoT Decision Maker Survey of approximately 54 U.S. healthcare executives. IDC's Global IoT Decision Maker Survey, 2018/2019, of more than 4,800 organizations worldwide, spanning 26 countries, across 22 industries, including healthcare and life sciences, was completed in October 2018.

"As more physical security devices, such as digital surveillance and door access control systems, are connected to the network, there is a growing convergence between digital and physical security, states Lynne A. Dunbrack, research vice president, IDC Health Insights. "These physical security devices are increasingly becoming the responsibility of the IT security team because they are vulnerable endpoints that could be attacked by cybercriminal to gain unauthorized access to the network, data assets, and healthcare IT systems."
