Medical Cybersecurity 2021: How Worried Should We be, and What Can We do?
From The Organizers:
Owen will present evidence that the background to this increasingly alarming situation can be better understood through three key aspects: (1) very high prices for exfiltrated personal health data on the dark web, (2) both cybersecurity professionals and their trainers are in short supply, with the most cash-strapped hospitals and healthcare systems losing out to better financed organizations, and (3) while technologies such as machine learning/AI, and blockchain may eventually give security professionals and citizens desiring secure and private health information the advantage, for now innovation, disruption and "sandboxing" seem on the side of the criminals. What can be done? Knowing what organizations have legal access to your health information is critical, healthcare system policies about investing in security are perhaps responsive to popular pressure, and good personal information security behavior can reduce some vulnerabilities.
