Alpine Security understands the risk that vulnerable medical and IoMT (Internet of Medical Things) devices pose to healthcare delivery organizations and patients. Alpine Security wants to do something about it. One of their 2019 initiatives is sponsoring the Archimedes 2019 Medical Device Security 101 Conference. Alpine Security believes community support and collaboration are necessary to develop effective and industry-accepted solutions for medical device security.
From medication administration to remote sensor monitoring, embedded medical devices are improving the quality of care and increasing interaction with their providers. While this technology was most certainly created with good intentions, the lack of security in product design phases is a major concern - a concern that will likely materialize into malicious action with grave consequences.
