HEALTHCARE SECURITY FORUM: A HIMSS EVENT
Boston, MA, Oct. 15-16, 2018
Christian Dameff is an emergency medicine physician, hacker, and medical cybersecurity thought leader and researcher whose security research topics include hacking critical healthcare infrastructure and medical devices, topics on which he has been invited to speak at some of the premiere infosec conferences in the world including DefCon and RSA. He is currently completing a clinical informatics fellowship at the University of California San Diego.
Gone are the days when loss of PHI was the industry’s biggest worry: We now face a looming patient-safety crisis.Vulnerable medical devices are being recalled and equally vulnerable devices continue to be produced.
In this session, two clinicians-security researchers simulate a medical device breach, demonstrating the peril and possibilities healthcare now confronts in a world of connected, technology-dependent medicine.
Following the medical device hack simulation, the speakers, joined by the FDA's Suzanne Schwartz, will share medical-device security best practices and participate in an audience Q&A.
