From hospital floors to medical device manufacturing factory floors, health care cybersecurity faces daunting challenges including unpatchable legacy medical devices, ransomware disrupting patient care, privacy breaches of patient records, cybersecurity workforce development, and basic cyber hygiene. U.S. Senator Mark Warner recently published a paper, “Cybersecurity is patient safety: policy options in the health care sector.” Join a conversation with Senator Mark Warner and moderator Prof. Kevin Fu, PhD, of the Archimedes Center for Health Care and Medical Device Security presently at the University of Michigan.
