Responding to Patient Focused Cyber Attacks

When:  Nov 16, 2021 from 03:00 PM to 04:00 PM (ET)
Are you prepared for a cyber attack against a patient? Most cybersecurity response plans are based on protecting data, not patients. There are different considerations to put in place when your focus is on protecting patients first.

The 2021 ECRI Report of Top 10 Health Technology Hazards ranked vulnerabilities in medical devices near the top. Because a human life could be relying on the security of your medical devices, it is important to approach your medical device cybersecurity strategy and incident response differently than your IT cybersecurity strategy.

The session will discuss medical device cybersecurity threats and what hospitals should consider when defining their medical device cybersecurity strategy, including how to put the patient first. We’ll share information about how to structure your medical device incident response plan, and we’ll give guidance for creating a comprehensive Medical Device Cybersecurity strategy.

Key Takeaways:
  • Defining policies, best practices, and governance for strong compliance
  • How a medical device cybersecurity plan is different than an IT cybersecurity plan
  • Protocol driven Medical Device incident response
