HIMSS Healthcare Security Forum's Hottest Topics: AI, Bug Bounty Programs, Medical Device Hacks

By Jessica Davis


At this point, the healthcare sector is well aware that hackers are targeting providers in droves. For one, it’s often an easy target. But primarily, healthcare is rich with patient data that providers need access to for daily operations.

Hackers know that -- and as the onslaught of cyberattacks continue to permeate the industry, cybersecurity should be top-of-mind for all C-suite executives. 

The upcoming HIMSS Healthcare Security Forum in San Francisco, will zero-in on these issues and the industry’s most pressing cybersecurity concerns. Not only that, but security leaders will highlight lessons learned -- and how organizations can fight back.

Retired U.S. Navy Commander Kirk Lippold will kick things off by highlighting the importance of leadership and accountability in navigating the threat landscape. His opening keynote will use a suicide terrorist attack as a backdrop, to show how healthcare security leaders can impart a sense of ownership to staff.

Medical device security will also take the spotlight, as Jeff Tully, University of California Davis security researcher and Christian Dameff, UC San Diego emergency medicine doctor discuss how breaches are no longer the only threat to patients. Medical device hacks present a serious threat to patient safety.

Tully and Dameff will demonstrate how hackers can breach medical devices -- and how that can impact an ever-connected world of healthcare technology.
