Securing the IoT Threat in Healthcare

Presented by

Mark Baik & May Wang

About this talk

Gartner predicts that the number of connected devices that the internet of things (IoT) will hit 25 billion by 2021. While IoT opens the door for innovative new approaches and services, it also presents new cybersecurity risks. This is particularly true in healthcare, where a vast array of connected devices and instruments are being deployed to deliver on the promise of improved patient care. From our analysis of 1.2 million IoT devices over two years, however, we discovered that 98% of IoT traffic is unencrypted and 83% of medical imaging systems are using out of support OS. IoT security in hospitals not only impacts data security but it also impacts patient safety and care operations. Join this webinar for a discussion around the current state of IoT security in Healthcare. We will explore the top threats from our recent publication of IoT Threat Report and best practices that you can adopt to secure your organization.
