Description

The advent of technology, with smart hospitals, telehealth and connected medical devices including mobile platforms, has made healthcare much more efficient and effective but has also made data and operations more vulnerable to malicious actors. As a result, the health and public health community needs to be ever vigilant in order to remain protected and resilient. Part of this vigilance comes from collaboration and trust in ways that industry has never collaborated and trusted before. Come hear Denise Anderson, President of the NH-ISAC and Dale Nordenberg, MD, Co-Founder and Executive Director, MDISS, discuss an exciting collaboration between their two organizations as well as the efforts underway between the medical device manufacturers and providers in accomplishing a new groundbreaking initiative to advance the security and safety of medical devices for patients’ and the public’s well-being.
