Medical devices are becoming increasingly smarter and more interconnected. Due to the advancements of these devices in the areas of functionality, paired with a neglect for security, healthcare organizations and their patients are put at greater risk. Networked medical devices can be a gateway to a healthcare organization’s domain, opening the door to a trove of protected health information. Although some guidance has been released in the form of security frameworks and recommendations by the FDA, HIMSS, the VA, and ISO, the industry has yet to see standardization among them.
Although healthcare organizations and their patients are typically those impacted the most by breaches in medical device security, vendors, providers, regulators, and government security agencies all contribute to determining how secure healthcare environments can become.
In this webinar, participants will:
- Learn why medical devices are especially vulnerable to cyber attacks
- Develop an understanding of how unauthorized access to medical devices can impact the safety and security of healthcare organizations and their patients
- Identify means by which organizations can mitigate the risks introduced by medical devices; including examples of what industry leaders have done
