The first Webinar Wednesday presentation of 2021 was titled “Why Biomedical Professionals Should Care About Zero Trust.” It was sponsored by Medigate and eligible for 1 credit from the ACI.
The 60-minute webinar featured experts Thomas Finn, director of market development of Medigate and Karen McMillen, security analyst of Asante Information Technology Services. Most know Zero Trust (ZT) as a philosophical premise that no networked device or user can be trusted. Not surprisingly, it is viewed by biomedical professionals as a new set of security constraints. Contrary to this popular belief, ZT should be an enabler of connected medicine. Hours of relief to already overworked biomedical professionals should be a result. The network should take care of security so that devices under biomed management – devices essential to diagnosis and patient care – are always highly available. This means that biomed professionals must be fully present when ZT strategy is under development. This webinar provided the biomed audience an enlightened ZT context that will help define their participation in organizational discussions.
The webinar recorded 240 registrations with 151 logged in for the live presentation. A recording of the webinar is available for on-demand viewing.
Attendees provided feedback in a survey after the webinar. One question they were asked is, “What did you like most about today’s webinar?”
“The presenters were knowledgeable and made the material easy to understand,” shared J. Timson, CBET/BMET II.
“The overlap between HTM (Biomed) and IT. This is a growing concern for my shop, especially when it comes to trusting devices, how and who updates/patches devices, middle wear, and specialty training needed in order to perform maintenance actions across the board with IoMT devices,” said K. Eckendorf, NCOIC Equipment Management Branch.
“This presentation was very informative. To have devices protected and everyone on the same page, instead of so many other confusing management systems. The hour flew by. Well done,” said B. Hayes, CBET.
