SECURING INTERNET OF MEDICAL THINGS

 

According to a report from MarketResearch.com, millions of new Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) will be added to health systems and the market segment is poised to hit $117 billion by 2020.  Medical device manufacturers have traditionally focused on patient safety and time to market rather than security. Long FDA approval cycles mean that approved devices are often running outdated operating systems versions with known vulnerabilities and limited or no patching ability.  This lack of adequate security in IoT and IoMT is why Gartner is predicting that by 2020 25% of all enterprise breaches will involve IoT.   Securing IoMT requires close collaboration between biomedical and IT teams and a plan to address three core areas of IoMT security – physical, connection and data.  This session focuses on practical steps to improving IoMT security without expensive infrastructure upgrades or wholesale legacy medical device replacements.
