What Hijacked Robots Tell Us About IoT Risks in Healthcare

Presented by

About this talk

On April 12th a set of five vulnerabilities impacting Aethon TUG healthcare robots were disclosed by Cynerio. These vulnerabilities allowed researchers to remotely execute a wide range of attacks including accessing restricted areas, controlling elevators, interacting with patients, dispensing incorrect medications, and many more. This session will provide a deep dive into the findings, discuss how healthcare organizations can protect against them, and cover proactive steps to protect against similar findings in the future. We will also discuss the broader trends related to IoT adoption in healthcare and how organizations are balancing the associated risks and benefits of modern technologies.
