PATIENT CARE DOESN’T STOP AT THE INFUSION PUMP: HOW TO MITIGATE IOT AND MEDICAL DEVICE SECURITY RISK

According to ECRI,there are 14-17 connected medical devices for every hospital
bed. However, Ponemon reports only 51% of device makers say they follow guidance from the FDA to mitigate or reduce inherent security risks in medical devices, which creates additional security blind spots and increases the cyberattack surface for hospitals and healthcare systems. This session will define the security and operational
challenges associated with connected endpoints, including IoT and medical devices, and will discuss how hospitals and healthcare delivery organizations (HDOs) can reap the rewards of IT adoption to achieve operational efficiencies, provide a better patient care experience and reduce the overall risk to patient safety.
We will discuss:

  • Emerging issues and trends that are risky to healthcare IT systems and can directly affect patient safety,violate their trust and impact revenue
  • Best practices for shoring up network security blind spots and mitigating the risk of IoT and medical devices
  • Why real-time endpoint visibility and intelligence is the key to achieving an effective and
    proactive cybersecurity strategy
