The ubiquity and availability of healthcare data collected by new internet connected and sensor-enabled health and medical devices (the ‘Internet of Health Things’) is unquestionably a boon for healthcare providers and patients. Yet, the same effect inevitably increases the cybersecurity attack vectors available to hackers and cyber-criminals who use ever-evolving techniques to exploit security vulnerabilities in the healthcare industry. As connected health devices weave the internet of things into the delivery of healthcare services, the security of those devices is of vital importance to policymakers and healthcare practitioners. To ensure the success of connected health innovations, we must find effective ways to understand the current threat landscape and identify how health systems should manage risk to protect patient data. This panel will explore the latest viewpoints on how to change the policy and business environments to provide American patients with dynamic and responsive privacy protections.
