Medical devices are increasing in software and network connectivity dependency at a rapid pace - and with the benefits to software and connectivity come vulnerabilities and exposure. In this talk, learn about the past five years of security research into medical device vulnerabilities, including the results of a honeypot experiment where devices simulating medical devices were placed on the Internet. Adam Brand will dive into the details on specific medical device vulnerabilities and cover how regulators, medical device manufacturers and healthcare organizations are addressing the risk.
