Industry Track - Securing Healthcare

Panel: Securing Healthcare

Panel Chair:

Ed Miller (CTO, Center for Medical Interoperability)


Connected health care is essential to achieving critical improvements in quality and cost of care. Networked health devices are embedded in our bodies, worn, used at home, used in doctor’s offices, and of course, are prevalent in hospitals. Each environment faces different threats, but clearly the personal and corporate risks of insecure devices and services are severe. Yet, no clear best practices or solutions for securing healthcare have gained widescale adoption, especially at the medical device level. This session will review industry efforts and highlight technologies addressing unique cybersecurity needs of the healthcare industry.
