Demo: How to Prevent Hackers from Compromising Your Medical Devices
The Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) is opening up a new world of possibilities to improve upon patient care, while also improving operational productivity and effectiveness. However, as the proliferation of connected and complex medical devices grows, healthcare providers are more susceptible to cyberattacks. This is already an all too common reality for many organizations in the healthcare space. A recent survey by Irdeto found that 82% of healthcare organizations have experienced an IoT-focused cyberattack in the past year, with 30% of attacks resulting in compromised end-user safety. This alarming finding indicates that global care providers must continue to evolve their security approach to ensure the security of care facilities, medical devices and the safety of patients.
In this demo session, we’ll explore some of the techniques attackers are using to break into connected medical devices to steal valuable patient data and intellectual property. We’ll also explore some of the tools developers and manufacturers can make use of to fight back against these attackers.
