Cardiac Rhythm Management
banner Abbot HRS2017 CyberSecurity

 

Activity Description

The webcast evaluates how medical technology advancements must be balanced against cybersecurity risk and reviews the policies and procedures in place to provide continuous assessments and mitigations to protect against cybersecurity risk as it applies to implanted medical devices connected to a network. Medical technology with remote management solutions can improve patient outcomes, including quality of life, decrease in-office visits, and reduce healthcare costs. However, as medical technology becomes increasingly interconnected via the Internet, hospital networks, and smartphones, there exists some risk for exploitation of cybersecurity vulnerabilities.

Led by Dr. Leslie Saxon, this activity has been developed to raise awareness through the insights of leading governmental and other cybersecurity experts who provide reviews surrounding the current and future direction of medical technology cybersecurity for increasing standards of patient care.

The webcast is comprised of proceedings from an accredited satellite symposium held during Heart Rhythm.
