9:00am - 9:45am Virtual

Session 1: Biomedical Devices and Modern Security

Even as they help save lives, biomedical devices can provide a vector into critical and sensitive systems. The fact that these devices are made to interact with the human body means that they are held to very high technological standards with a goal of as little change as possible to ensure that stability. Modern cybersecurity threats and mitigations, on the other hand, rely on constant updating and change. This session will explore the technological and human factors involved in biomedical device cybersecurity.

9:45am - 10:10am Virtual
