ISSA-LA December Joint Holiday Party With OWASP LA

December 21, 2016 @ 6:15 pm - 9:30 pm

Topic: Medical Devices: How to Hack Them, How to Secure Them
Medical devices are increasing in software and network connectivity dependency at a rapid pace — and with the benefits to software and connectivity come vulnerabilities and exposure. Even if you don’t work with medical devices on a daily basis, you or someone you care about will depend on a medical device at some point in the future; so it is important to stay current on the security of these devices. In this talk, learn about the past five years of security research into medical device vulnerabilities, including the results of a honeypot experiment where devices simulating medical devices were placed on the Internet. Adam Brand will dive into the details on specific medical device vulnerabilities and cover how regulators, medical device manufacturers, and healthcare organizations are addressing the risk.

Speaker: Adam Brand
Adam Brand has more than 16 years’ experience in information technology and security. He is a Director with Protiviti, where one of his focus areas is healthcare and medical device security.
