Essex Ballroom

Struggling to stay on top of medical and IoT devices in your environment? If you don’t have a complete picture of everything in your environment, you can’t manage or secure it. Find out how to get the visibility you need into all the medical and IoT devices that are connecting to your clinical networks. See how a real-time detailed inventory can help you better manage your risks. In this talk, learn how to:

  • Identify high risk devices, so you can prioritize and take appropriate actions to minimize your attack surface and address the threats they pose to your ongoing operations and patient care.
  • Track device usage and location to improve procurement practices and streamline ongoing management, maintenance and patching processes.
  • Monitor device communications and behaviors to accurately spot and prevent activity that is out of the norm in a clinical setting and could indicate a compromise or a malicious insider attack.
  • Strengthen security, by segmenting the network based on device type and functionality and creating policies that account for the clinical relevance of those devices.
