Health Care & Cybersecurity: A Powerful Combination


Date: June 19, 2019

Time: 8:00AM - 11:00AM

Location: ML Strategies, 701 Pennsylvania Ave, NW, Suite 900, Washington, DC 20004

The adoption of connected medical devices and the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) has both enhanced the quality of patient care and increased the vulnerability of health care organizations. Sophisticated cyberattacks on hospitals and health systems threaten patient safety and impose substantial financial costs. Join ML Strategies, Mintz, and Zingbox for a discussion on the policy and operational challenges for health care organizations and recommendations for accelerating the public and private response.

Share in discussions with Suzanne Schwartz, Acting Deputy Center Director for Science at the FDA’s Center for Devices & Radiological Health, Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) from leading hospitals, and experienced security colleagues on the current landscape, strategic goals, and lessons learned from their own organization’s medical device security journey.
