How to Close Medical Device Security Gaps

July 9, 2019

It is estimated that there are 10-15 medical devices connected to the network for every bed in a hospital, and each device carries its own security and compliance concerns. It is also estimated that healthcare organizations typically keep medical devices in use for as long as 15 years, if not longer. As a result, these ubiquitous devices are extremely susceptible to technical attacks simply because most active security vulnerabilities cannot be patched. As an industry, we recently saw an example of this with one of Microsoft’s latest vulnerabilities known as, “CVE-2019-0708,” presenting a critical security risk. Given these devices are essential to delivering patient care, they are more than just a security risk to operations…they are a patient safety concern.

In this webinar, Clyde Hewitt, Executive Advisor, and Cory Blacketer, Medical Device Security Consultant, discussed the current state of privacy and security risks posed by medical devices and the challenges associated with getting an effective medical device management strategy in place.
