In many cases, medical device security is much more complicated than healthcare organizations may realize. Certainly, most providers are aware that there are currently challenges around this topic and some have even started to inventory and assess their medical device security risks. However, while security risks are undoubtedly important, the top priority for these organizations should be patient safety. For example, just last summer, a neurosurgical center was hacked while surgeons were in the middle of performing a complex brain surgery, disabling all of the medical equipment being used to monitor the surgery. Similarly, in many healthcare organizations, recent malware attacks have caused entire cardiac catheterization and electrophysiology labs to shut down and, in some cases, even medication storage cabinets have been impacted.

Join industry experts on November 29th (from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm CST) for a webinar that will take a deep dive into biomedical device security risks and how these risks can not only cause disruptions to clinical operations but also directly impact or disrupt patient care. Together, they will provide attendees with real-world examples and best practices to better understand and address biomedical device risk.

Learning Objectives:

  • Determine how biomedical security risks are a patient safety and clinical operations issue.
  • Understand the biomedical device threat landscape and the challenges associated with managing the devices, as well as some unique risk mitigation strategies.
  • Identify the necessary steps to take in order to better understand the nature of these security risks, both technical and patient impacting, and what you can do to help mitigate some of those risks.
