Smart medical devices have become indispensable to healthcare organizations. But they come with a host of evolving security and management considerations and challenges.
The introduction of new regulations, such as the PATCH Act, are a case in point. As are the latest NIST guidelines for IoT, IoMT, and other smart and unmanaged devices in healthcare.
Join our Navigating the Changing Medical Device Threat Landscape webinar with H-ISAC on Wednesday, September 21, 2022 @ 10AM PT for fresh insights on evolving challenges related to device security and regulatory compliance.
