For years, healthcare organizations have seen explosive growth in both the quantity and variety of unmanaged, IoT and IoMT devices. This evolution to hyper-connectivity renders traditional and agent-based network security approaches insufficient. As organizations embark on an IoT and IoMT security initiative, what are the security considerations? Which stakeholders should be involved? How should a real-world deployment be architected for success? How should CISOs evaluate vendors?
Join us for a fun fireside chat with Rich Mason, former CISO of Honeywell who will pose these questions and more to Taylor Lehmann, Athena Health CISO.
