Securing Medical Devices – The Next Threat Vector
Nick Holland – Executive Editor, ISMG / Troy Ament – Field CISO Healthcare, Fortinet
Covid-19 has accelerated usage of telehealth and telemedicine, but has also compounded healthcare security challenges on infrastructure and connected medical devices. According to recent surveys, an estimated 87% of healthcare providers use IoT devices, yet attacks against healthcare have increased by over 60% year over year. The trifecta of remote workers, an ever expanding attack surface and unsecured endpoints has provided a trove of opportunities for cybercriminals.
How can healthcare professionals leverage IoT technology to provide cutting edge patient care, yet be safe from inbound attacks? How can healthcare security professionals protect the growing endpoint universe? And what does the roadmap look like for connected and secure healthcare in the future?
Please join ISMG’s Nick Holland for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts the challenges of managing connected healthcare security now and in the future.
Discussion topics will include:
- What are the security challenges presented by telehealth and telemedicine?
- What are the security risks for consumer medical devices?
- What technology tools should healthcare organizations be investing in to secure their medical devices?
- How can I be sure that my organization is staying competitive in the rapidly evolving connected medical devices field?
Joining Nick to provide expert insight and case studies is Troy Ament, Field CISO Healthcare at Fortinet.
