Medical Grade Security for your Unpatchable Medical Devices

Presented by

Mick Coady, PwC, and Matt Mellen, Palo Alto Networks

About this talk

Because security is often an afterthought when medical devices are designed and maintained by the manufacturer, they are the most vulnerable devices in a hospital’s network. The medical device community is beginning to improve the security of their products, but it will take years for legacy devices to be upgraded or replaced. Until then, healthcare organizations need to develop strategies for mitigating the cybersecurity risks these unpatchable devices pose to their patients and the organizations themselves. Join Matt Mellen, a healthcare security architect and former security lead for a hospital network, and Mick Coady, a partner in the Health Information Privacy and Security Practice at PricewaterhouseCoopers, as they discuss how to approach and mitigate the challenges associated with securing medical devices in hospital environments. In this webinar, you will discover: •The cybersecurity risks posed by unpatchable and hard-to-patch medical devices •How to successfully mitigate medical device security risks •Strategies you can implement today to secure medical devices
