Physician, Secure Thyself? On building security into connected medical devices.

Medical devices have over the last few decades transitioned from being standalone units without remote communication capabilities to fully connected representatives of the Internet of Medical Things. Trends in the European health care system also imply that such devices are no longer confined to hospitals or care institutions, but are finding their way into people's homes as part of decentralized medical services. All this implies that the attack surface of medical devices is increasing, and it is high time that their manufacturers start building security in. This talk will highlight some of the challenges faced by medical device manufacturers who are heeding this call, and outline some specific tactics to improve the security of connected medical devices.
