Medical device manufacturers (MDM) used to be able to ship a device, hope that there were no cybersecurity issues, and address problems as they were found. Today, leading device vendors and stakeholders are demanding security be built into the devices they use. This talk explores this shift of moving the cybersecurity burden from hospitals, up the supply chain, to MDMs.
As such, MDMs must decide how to transition from delivering innovative clinical solutions, to delivering innovative clinical solutions that are also secure. The impact of insufficient cybersecurity on the business has been well-documented. Beyond the risk to top line revenue, insufficient security can impact patient safety, the delivery of care, regulatory compliance, reputation, and legal exposure (including personal culpability for executives).
Key takeaways from this session will focus on the risks and costs of doing security insufficiently or not at all, state of affairs today, and trends impacting the industry going forward.
