A free 45 minute presentation that will explore cybersecurity issues in wireless medical devices, including wearables and implants, such as ECG monitors, cardiac pacemakers/defibrillators, insulin pump systems, gastric stimulators and deep brain neurostimulators.

Vulnerabilities in these wireless medical devices have put patients’ privacy and safety under various risks, and may lead to having personal medical information stolen and settings in medical devices changed by malicious attackers.

This will also present several state-of-the-art cybersecurity schemes which are specifically designed to address security challenges in the wireless medical devices.
