How Medical Devices Are Vulnerable to Hacking Attacks

The technical side of cybersecurity and the potential impacts and risks to healthcare networks and medical devices will be explored at an upcoming conference.

ESD Studio Leader and Senior Security Consultant Coleman Wolf says the risks go beyond spy thriller fiction of rampaging surgical robots and covert assassinations using lethal pacemaker shocks.

Wolf will be presenting real-life examples of how “Medical Device Hacking is More Insidious Than You Think” at an upcoming Global Security Exchange (GSX) conference sponsored by ASIS International. Wolf’s session will help attendees learn about:

  • The motives and opportunities behind medical device and health care network cyberattacks
  • The technical aspects of hacking devices and the challenges of fixing vulnerabilities
  • The obstacles to addressing cybersecurity risks
  • Recommendations for solving problems

This year’s GSX will take place September 12 – 14 in Atlanta, Georgia. ASIS International describes it as the industry’s “most trusted annual event—and the cornerstone of security resilience and advancement worldwide.

Coleman Wolf shares his knowledge from over 25 years of security management and security engineering experience to promote ESD’s mission to improve society through the built environment.
