Using Fuzzy Cognitive Map approach for assessing Cybersecurity for Telehealth Scenario

Health organizations are investing in the development of telehealth systems to expand advances in health care to the homes of the Brazilian population. The adoption of telehealth aims to broaden basic monitoring and promote access to health services. Telehealth systems present a confidential data set containing patient health history, medication prescriptions, and medical diagnostics. However, in Brazil, there are no cybersecurity studies to address factors that impact patient manipulation and data transfer. Understanding cybersecurity impacts is critical for telehealth development strategies. The research reported here used several factors related to cyberattacks and cybersecurity vulnerabilities, combined with the approach to fuzzy cognitive maps (FCMs), to identify the links between these elements. An evaluation using FCMs has proven to be able to describe the complexity of the system by providing an appropriate visual tool for staff to develop planning. The experimental results of the study contributed to supporting cybersecurity improvements in telehealth
