Proactive and Preventative Vendor Security Management
4:00pm - 5:00pmWednesday, February 13
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
There is a lot of work that is being done to address medical device security and addressing the security of the devices themselves. However, the business factors that are required to address these for organizations are not being addressed, which leads to repeats of the existing issues. Several complicating factors are that Clinical Engineering and the other functions that support this equipment in a hospital environment do not normally communicate, outsourcing of departments like Clinical Engineering to third parties, lack of understanding of building security into contract management and managing the vendor relationships from concept to implementation to post-implementation support. Security needs to be integrated into the complete lifecycle, which requires a business-based approach to build this into the lifecycle. This also requires a change in relationship with your vendors. This session will discuss these concepts and how to apply them in your organization effectively.
