Adam Brand CISSP, Security Researcher and Community Leader, I Am the Cavalry
Medical devices represent a string of new endpoints, many of which tout outdated security technologies with limited flexibility for patching-- which presents Health IT leadership with a host of unique challenges. According to a new research survey by the San Jose-based design automation company Synopsys, 67 percent of medical device manufacturers and 56 percent of health delivery organizations believe an attack on a medical device built or in use by their organization is likely to occur over the next 12 months. Not only this, an alarming 9 percent of manufacturers and 5 percent of healthcare organizations said they test medical devices at least once a year, with 53 percent of providers highlighting they do not test at all.
In this engaging presentation, we visit with I Am the Cavalry's Adam Brand to explore the latest endpoint exploit research, and the vulnerabilities and processes that have made medical devices so high risk. We will then explore top considerations, strategies, and network structures that are protecting patients.
