The emerging of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies for unified and interconnected medical devices and sensors has changed the scenario in the healthcare industry. However, with the ‘openness' of the distributed environment and medical devices, IoT will be the point of a breach where attackers are able to identify vulnerabilities and subsequently launch their attacks. This becomes high risk to the healthcare environment which may cause a big impact on its security measure. Nonetheless, the benefits of IoT solution in healthcare are undeniable. To address this issue, this study proposes an IoT Security Risk Management Model for Secured Practice in Healthcare Environment. This study reviewed all IoT risks from related works and has selected one Malaysian government hospital as a case study. From the findings, a model was formulated which consist of three parts, the Healthcare IoT Risk Management, the Hospital Performance Indicator for Accountability (HPIA) and the implementation phases. As a result, a priori model was successfully developed and yet to be validated by the case study participants in the next stage.
