Session ID: 

Self-Inflicted Medical Device “Denial of Service": Ugly, Bad, and Great!

8:30am - 9:30am Thursday, February 14
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center


Cyber-attacks have been in the headlines for many years. Like many others, we had performed security assessments, invested heavily in tools to protect and defend, built in redundancies at a substantial cost and increased the size of our security team. We focused on networks, servers and desktops. This session will outline the approach taken to raise awareness of medical device vulnerabilities and achieve organizational support for development of a program for continued medical device security management. During the course of the session, the speakers will review the results of two recent medical device risk assessments that have been conducted and the associated plans to mitigate or minimize the risks.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Describe the path for securing organizational support and commitment to medical device security
  • Recognize the value of performing regular medical device risk assessments
  • Analyze a sample of medical device risk assessments and their associated results
  • Describe possible strategies and approaches for collaboratively engaging internal teams as well as vendors
