PRIVACY & SECURITY FORUM: A HIMSS EVENT
San Francisco, CA - May 11 - 12, 2017
While significant attention has been given to security and privacy concerns surrounding pharmaceutical development, manufacturing, and supply, considerably less has been given to medical devices and diagnostics. This is perplexing, since for medical devices particularly, the confluence of IoT and mobility represent one of the most attractive areas of cyberattack. Personal medical records are now valued 10-20 times more highly than financial data. This information can be used to create online personas, which in turn are used to propagate massive identity theft and other crimes. This session will be a call to action to help combat these worrisome emerging trends.
