Seminar Information:

ABSTRACT:

Given the fast pace of innovation in digital health technologies, specifically in relation to the evolution of medical devices with more complex software and increased network connectivity, a new frontier of cybersecurity vulnerabilities has emerged. As a result, designers of such technologies face many challenges and must consider many inter-related factors that contribute to such an insecure environment.

 

In this talk, we will identify the key classes of vulnerabilities to which modern medical devices and digital health technologies are exposed, discuss the security and privacy challenges in designing these technologies, and outline some of the defensive measures that can address this complex and multi-faceted problem.
