Code Blue: Rethinking Security for Clinical Environments

Session Description

Hospitals and physicians offices are on the front lines of the IoT revolution - and have been for years. Network-connected medical equipment provides vital, real time data to doctors, nurses and support staff, enabling them to manage more patients, better with fewer people. But research has shown that medical equipment isn't immune from the same flaws and weaknesses as traditional IT systems. In fact: just the opposite. Medical devices often lack even basic security protections that have long been taken for granted on desktops, laptops, servers and even mobile phones. Medical systems are often silo'd, lacking integration and requiring clinical staff to coordinate information across multiple different interfaces and management stations. As more devices begin connecting wirelessly to clinical networks or break out of the four walls of the clinical environment altogether, the risks to medical devices and patient safety increase. In this panel discussion, Chip Block and a panel of experts will talk about efforts to secure medical devices and clinical environments from external and internal threats. Among other things, this panel will profile Docbox, one solution that seeks to create a common platform for securely connecting medical devices within clinical environments.
