Securing Wireless Medical Infusion Pumps - A Use Case
February 22, 2017 — 10:00AM EST - 11:00AM EST
Orange County Convention Center
This presentation demonstrates how to secure medical devices in a health provider’s enterprise network. This use case, developed in collaboration with health IT vendors at the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE), covers identifying the actors interacting with infusion pumps, defining the interactions between the actors and the system, performing a risk assessment, categorizing the challenges facing successful management of medical device cybersecurity and reviewing applicable mitigating security technologies. The outcome is a repeatable, scalable example implementation solution.
Once healthcare organizations understand today’s available technologies, they can set strategies to prioritize vulnerabilities, obtain these technologies for use within their organization, educate staff, and most significantly, mitigate cybersecurity risk to patients.
Demonstrate how healthcare providers can use a solution developed by the NCCoE to secure their medical devices on an enterprise network, with a specific focus on wireless infusion pumps
Evaluate risks associated with threats and vulnerabilities related to medical devices and the wide array of technologies that can be employed to mitigate these risks 3. Gain applied knowledge of how to implement similar security controls in existing healthcare environments
Recognize how to implement similar security controls in existing healthcare environments
