With the rapid growth of medical devices in the interconnected healthcare landscape, CISOs face the challenge of providing security for devices which look and act differently from traditional IT devices. The need to extend an IT security management program to medical devices is paramount to secure the HIT computing environment. This presentation will help the CISO understand the following: what a medical device is (technically and regulatory);
the differences between a medical device and a traditional IT device that requires special consideration of tactics, toolsets and people; a framework for what a practical medical device security program might look like; and
advice for how a security leader can implement such a program in their organization.
