Mobile & IoT Protection for Medical Devices

A Best Practices Discussion | Featuring Forrester and Arxan

November 15th | 5 pm - 9 pm | W Hotel Minneapolis

According to the FBI, criminals can gain access to unprotected devices used in home healthcare, such as those used to collect and transmit personal monitoring data or time-dispensed medicines. Once criminals have breached such devices, they gain access to any personal or medical information stored on the devices, as well as the power to change the coding that controls the dispense mechanism of medicines or health data collection. This can result in major health issues and potential loss of lives. Security professionals have already proven that pacemakers and insulin pumps, as well as surgical and anesthesia devices, ventilators, infusion pumps, defibrillators, patient monitors, and laboratory equipment are all vulnerable to incursion. The IoT healthcare market is driven by the rising demand for improved healthcare, reduced cost of care, and the evolution of high speed networking technologies. It is expected to grow from $32.47 billion in 2015 to $163.24 billion by 2020, with the number of IoT medical devices in use that will be ripe for hackers to attack expected to grow in numbers, as well. A common threat vector within IoT medical devices is the binary code that reveals the DNA of the application. Accessing the binary code allows hackers to analyze, identify, and reverse-engineer the components of the app.

At this event, we will have Forrester Senior Analyst Chris Sherman share his insight about the connected medical device industry and security issues followed by an exciting panel with distinguished security experts from the medical industry.  The panel will cover topics around practical issues around security, ISO certification and other regulatory requirements from HIPAA, FDA, and others, tips from your peers around creating processes, and more. We’ll also be taking questions from the attendees during the panel session. After the presentations, you’ll have a chance to network with your peers at a Gala Networking Reception and Dinner.
