A topic getting a significant amount of attention at the recent HIMSS 2018 Conference and Exhibition was that of medical device security. Addressing that topic was a dinner and panel discussion hosted by CloudPost Networks, Huntzinger, and Meditology Services. Approximately 40 CIOs, CTOs, CISOs, and others, listened to Wes Wright, CTO of Sutter Health, and Clint Perkinson, Director of Information Technology at Beebe Healthcare, provide their insights on medical device security. The expert panelists, as well as the attendees, expressed concern that medical devices present a significant cybersecurity challenge to healthcare organizations.
Below is a quick look back at Huntzinger Management Group attending HIMSS18 last week, which was held in Las Vegas.
