Topic Title: How to Manage the Emerging Threat from the Internet of Medical Things
Date & Time: February 14, 2019 at 12pm
Location: IBM Watson booth (#6459)

The Internet of Things brings increased connectivity to all markets and industries, enabling a wide-array of new services for customers and new business models for service providers. Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) is not only accelerating the advances of science, but also enabling a more human approach to healing. Data allows us to refine treatments, better networks enable more timely care, and streamlined workflows improve operational productivity for healthcare organizations.

However, as connected medical devices multiply and the value of personal data goes up, IoMT becomes exponentially more attractive to hackers and cyber criminals. With increased connectivity and often developed on standard platforms, new IoMT devices give hackers opportunity to move to a new generation of Ransomware, to gain greater access to personal health records or to take control over these medical devices, to name just a few.

This session will describe how IoMT innovators can rely on a full end-to-end threat monitoring solution for patients, devices and network security. Starting at the network edge with hardened IoMT devices and software, expanding to real-time alerts of any security anomalies, immediate deployment of Incident Response Teams and renewable software. The right security strategy and technology gives you access to state-of-the-art security to protect your IP, reputation and revenue – more importantly, it ensures your patients remain safe in your care.

Intelligence. Innovation. Immunity.
