The "Biomedical Device" Security Nightmare at Hospitals - Webinar

The "Biomedical Device" Security Nightmare at Hospitals. How should IT Manage this

Webinar - Fremont, CA, United States

Biomedical devices and especially those devices connected to IT networks are not going away. We live in a networked world, where one application or device needs to communicate with many upstream or downstream devices and applications to deliver safe care. We must consider biomedical devices to be an integral part of our information infrastructures and therefore we must permit and nurture their security. Doing this in a clear, uncluttered and stepwise fashion is the right start for most US hospitals today. We cannot and should not ignore this threat to patient safety.

With massive IT and security risks posed by medical devices to Hospital IT infrastructures, what should security practitioners do?

Biomedical devices in contemporary hospitals and other care delivery environment are necessarily ubiquitous. They are instrumental for delivering excellent health care. A 400 bed hospital may have over 5000 such devices, many of which required network connectivity to report results to a downstream piece of software, or for remote IT management. There are a staggering variety of biomedical devices types ranging from cytometers, infusion pumps, to heart rate monitors and resuscitators.
