Summary: The first FDA caused recall of 465,000 pacemakers by Abbott Labs due to a security invulnerability hit the medical IT world in 2017. Johnson and Johnson and many other insulin pump manufactures have reported that their own devices have been vulnerable to hacking in 2016 and even earlier.
The loss of money or identify theft due to a black hat hacker can be a big pain. But it is much worse if ransomware puts a stop to a pacemaker of someone you know just for money or for the lulz. This isn`t some episode of Homeland. This a real problem, right now. This talk will highlight the problems of how the current trends of rushing to tie Internet of Things(IoT) to medical devices has turned the dream of telemedicine into a security nightmare. During this talk you will be encouraged not only to discuss the seriousness of this problem, but to also take part in discussion on how we together can come up with practical solutions to make things safer, sounder, and significantly more secure.
Please come so you can learn more about IoT in medicine as well contribute a healthy discussion about this important topic.
