Live Simulation: A Medical Device Hack and Patient Codes | RSAC 2018

As healthcare technology continues to advance and medical professionals increasingly rely on connected medical devices and technologies, we must ask: “Is healthcare technology advancing faster than healthcare cybersecurity can keep up?” Industry experts estimate that 85 percent of hospitals in the U.S. lack a single cybersecurity professional on staff, which compounds the issue.

Watch as Josh Corman, Founder and CSO at PTC, Dr. Christian Dameff and Dr. Jeff Tully invite a physician -- without previous insight into the subject -- to perform a live clinical simulation of a medical emergency. In the end, the guest physician discovers that the device has been hacked. Its firmware was reversed. We see how an unsuspecting doctor handles this life-threatening cyber-attack in real time and how her perceptions of and trust in connected medical devices is changed forever. The simulation you are about to see is based on laboratory documented security vulnerabilities and features accurate human pathophysiology.
