Real-World Strategies for Medical Device Security

September 12, 2017
1:30pm - 2:00pm
Constitution B

The current regulatory environment does not give healthcare providers specific guidance on addressing medical device security -  but that doesn't mean you can't take action. In this session, speakers with first-hand experience assessing and developing successful medical device security programs share their insights and leading practices.

Discussion points will address:

How to make tangible progress reducing medical device security risks with limited resources

Suggested prioritization and road maps for securing medical devices.

Practical procedural approaches for addressing biomed security areas, including network isolation, policies, asset management, training and awareness, patching, malware protection, and more.

How to define responsibility and break down communication silos across stakeholder groups (between medical device manufacturers, biomedical and clinical engineering, IT, purchasing, and other key stakeholders).

How to begin developing a program despite a lack of regulatory guidance and comprehensive industry standards.

Convincing conversation points for senior leadership, highlighting serious threats, required remediation and additional efforts to secure your most vulnerable assets.
