Topic Description
Today’s interconnected world has brought numerous advances in health care and with it increased risk. Connected medical devices are susceptible to multiple vulnerabilities from cyber attacks; the most catastrophic of which is death to those who the intended use of the device is to treat. Pressure is on medical device developers to identify these vulnerabilities and implement safeguards. This presentation will explore some of the vulnerabilities and the challenges faced by medical device developers to eliminate or protect the patients for harm.
