"Attackers are getting smart. They used to attack and encrypt files, now they're attacking at the virtual machine layer, which helps them escape detection, early leading indicators, and this has made the defenders' jobs harder," he said. "The defenders have to apply, risk, threat and resilience to really keep their hospitals and healthcare systems up and running."

"Hospitals have a lot of sensitive content. To deliver cyber resilience, you need to understand cyber posture and need to deliver cyber recovery," he said.

"At the end of the day, data is the most critical asset. Protecting that data and making sure it's available to the right user, on the right platform, at the right time, for the right duration" is critical, he said.

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2024, Sinha also discussed:

  • The digital transformation of healthcare;
  • The challenges of safeguarding health data in the cloud;
  • The significance of Rubrik's purchase last August of data security posture management startup Laminar for $104.9 million.
