Adam Brand started his interest in medical devices (and hacking) in his early teens, when he built an EEG and convinced neighborhood kids to take part in his experiments on biofeedback. He now has more than 17 years of experience in information technology and security, and while he no longer experiments on neighbors, he is still heavily involved with medical devices. As a Director with Protiviti, he leads the medical device security practice and helps device manufacturers and healthcare providers manage connected device risks. Brand has been heavily involved with the “I am The Cavalry” movement, a group of security researchers focused on issues that can affect human life and safety. He is a frequent speaker and facilitator, and very active in the medical device security community.
