False data injection attacks (FDIA) are widely studied mainly in the area of smart grid, power systems and wireless sensor networks. In this paper, an overview of the FDIA is proposed including the definition and detection techniques proposed so far. The main focus of this paper is to create awareness about the impact of the FDIA in domains other than smart grid such as healthcare. The impact of FDIA in healthcare is overlooked for last couple of years around the globe. However, the recent information security incidents rise in the healthcare sector reaffirms the requirements of preventive measures for FDIA in healthcare. In this paper, we also focus on the emerging attacks on the healthcare domain to understand the importance of FDIA prevention techniques.
