Session Abstract

The spectrum of technologies supporting health care is staggering, and medical devices are a
large part of the complex ecosystem delivering patient care. The things medical devices enable
caregivers to do is genuinely awe-inspiring.

This diversity of technology is also more connected than ever before. Healthcare is an
information business, and medical device technology generates much of the data supporting
patient care. The burden of ensuring this technology remains safe to use, protects patient data,
and is available when needed, falls squarely on the shoulders of HTM staff. As bad actors crank
up attacks on healthcare, HTM staff increasingly take on cybersecurity responsibility. This extra
duty may seem daunting, but HTM staff are more prepared than they realize.

This session will discuss the challenges of securing medical devices and what HTM staff can do
to reduce the threat surface, limit the blast radius, and improve the efficiency and effectiveness
of response and recovery activities for their organization.
