Patients are stressed when they seek care. Worrying about their health records needs to not add to it. Protecting patient information by securing healthcare technology – including IoT – is possible, with a strategy.
Week 3 - Securing Internet-Connected Devices in Healthcare
“Safe and Sound” in a Hospital?
Healthcare must have an effective IoT security strategy (including staff training) in order to protect: infusion and insulin pumps.; Wireless vital monitors; Thermometers; Smart pens; MRI systems; Blood gas analyzers; CT scans; anesthesia machines; x-ray machines and pacemakers. It’s a lot … and it matters.
Healthcare IoT : A $160B Market?
Data explosions. The immediate need for data access on devices of all types—by whom, how do they access it, and where is it? How is this all gonna work, and how can you make sure patient records are secure.?
The COVID-19 Ruckus and The Butterfly Effect

IoT security is today’s “herding cats.” Here’s how attackers exploit the proliferation of IoT and what we recommend to harden your sentries.
It's more than Echo ... Echo ... Echo…
It's not just about your home speaker anymore. One of our IoT security experts, Sean Tufts, talks about how embedding IoT devices in various organizations is more than just problematic – it’s about the temperature of a chicken.
Joe Disruptive vs. Jane in IT – Who Will Win?
You may have more than one – the employee who is a constant security disrupter. What can you do? Read about what Jane did – with Optiv’s help.
Cameras. Badge Printers. Smart Displays. Sensors. Thermostats. All Vulnerable. Now What?
Who wants anyone cracking into their internet of things (IoT) to steal their private data? No one, right?!? Because so many devices are connected, the possibility that an adversary will try to exploit these weaknesses is likely. However, ensuring the security of these endpoints is nearly impossible without knowing which devices are connected and tracking their activities. Get embedded devices into your vulnerability management program with these techniques.
Fix Your IoT Chaos
IoT devices. Are they becoming huge tools for how your company pivots in the market? They can increase your competitive advantages and make you more efficient. But they also expand your threat landscape. Managing their security is crucial.
