For anyone left in any doubt that healthcare and medical devices in particular are highly vulnerable to cyber attack, let me introduce you to a couple of active physicians: Doctors Christian Dameff MD and Jeff Tully MD from the University of California Health System, who are joined on stage for a live presentation at the RSA Security Conference by Josh Corman from 'I Am The Cavalry to demonstrate what can happen when a device attached to an ER patient is hacked and how that patient is placed in danger by the failure of a critical medical device.
This is not theory, or cybersecurity geeks trying to pimp fear uncertainly and doubt to an unsuspecting audience, this is unsuspecting professional physicians trying their best to treat a patient in crisis while dealing with a hacked medical instrument. What's alarming is that it could easily happen to you, your spouse, your child, or a close friend.
Presenters: Dr. Christian Dameff, Emergency Physician and Clinical Informatics Fellow, University of California San Diego Dr. Jeff Tully, Anesthesiologist and Pediatrician, University of California Davis Josh Corman, CSO/Founder, PTC / I am The Cavalry
