Abstract: Many healthcare organizations are exposed to various cyber threats. The increase in the frequency of these cyber threats can also be observed during the Covid-19 pandemic. The security of information systems in hospitals and their management is also not part of the management of facilities in these organizations. The paper presents the possibilities of securing facility management processes in healthcare organizations from a security point of view. There is an analysis of security aspects of a particular medical facility and its information system with emphasis on the application of regular facility management. Analysis and evaluation of tools for ensuring the security of the hospital information network is also applied. The contribution of the paper is the identification and expression of the correlation between cyber threats and the following modules of the information system in the medical facility. Another part of the proven research compares safety mechanisms and their possible failure in a selected hospital. The main research results, which are based on the evaluation of safety aspects in these organizations, can be further used as a platform for the effectiveness of processes in healthcare and thus increase synergies between safety levels and ensure facility management processes.
