Smart medical devices continue to evolve the ways patient care is delivered. From reducing wait times and simplifying procedures, to enabling remote care services, connected clinical assets benefit healthcare organizations in a myriad of ways. Information security teams, however, face major challenges extending their existing vulnerability management programs to include medical devices. Whether it’s a traditional network-enabled CT scanner running a Windows operating system, or a wireless telemetry monitor leveraging a more proprietary application stack, each device’s sensitive nature prevents a traditional vulnerability assessment tool from leveraging the same scanning approaches used on enterprise devices. How can healthcare organizations then truly understand the vulnerability exposure posed by their medical devices?
Join Armis’ resident healthcare experts Oscar Miranda, Field CTO for Healthcare and Mohammad Waqas, Principal Solutions Architect-Healthcare as they discuss the challenges healthcare organizations face on the journey of implementing a medical device vulnerability management program, and steps information security teams and leadership can take to help manage the increasing number of vulnerabilities on their most sensitive devices.
