Secure from the Start: Why Medical IoT Needs Protection Now

2:00pm - 3:00pm Friday, March 9
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
Marcello 4401

Description

Healthcare organizations that don't learn how to operate in the new Digital Age, leveraging sensors and devices that make up Medical IoT, are not likely to survive. Each of these devices generates data that is collected, sorted, analyzed, stored, and examined somewhere - usually in or through the cloud. This data, and the new connected medical devices that create it, are changing how healthcare organizations are run and how clinicians assess, diagnose, treat, and interact with their patients. However, any device that can receive, collect, store or transmit data also has the potential to be compromised. How do healthcare organizations balance the value and risk of Medical IoT? Securely managing Medical IoT requires automated visibility and unified policies for sensors and devices and the data they generate; advanced detection enhanced with real-time threat intelligence; and centralized control that can automatically coordinate response.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Recognize the security challenges that Medical IoT is creating for today's healthcare organizations
  • Discuss real-world use cases detailing how cutting-edge healthcare organizations are able to design security into transformational Medical IoT-based applications that begin providing protection from the moment they are launched
  • Explain how today's health systems can apply an integrated security strategy to provide the best patient care possible while protecting their most precious asset - human data
