The June 24 webinar “Securing Connected Medical Devices: The New Hippocratic Oath” was sponsored by Armis and eligible for 1 credit from the ACI.
Armis CISO Curtis Simpson discussed how hospitals and clinics are exploding with new connected medical devices. From infusion pumps to MRI machines, X-ray machines, heart monitors and communication badges, these connected medical devices help clinicians deliver faster, higher quality care. But they also create an attack surface that most healthcare delivery organizations can’t secure. How do you secure medical devices that can’t take an agent or be scanned? How do you detect and stop ransomware attacks? How do you ensure patient safety and hospital operations?
Simpson addressed these challenges and how health care organizations can protect themselves and their patients.
The webinar drew 278 attendees for the live presentation and more have viewed a recording of the session online. Every attendee gained valuable knowledge and a couple of lucky ones won a prize. Michael Swango of Parkview Health, Indiana won a Webinar Wednesday T-shirt given away during the live webinar. Robert Resnicoff of Medstar Union Memorial Hospital in Maryland won a gift card.
