Join CW in debating the medical device security threats and solutions for the internet of hospitals and patients.
Confirmed speakers include Hugo Vincent of Arm, Pat Nash of InVMA, Andrew Tsonchev of Darktrace and Michelle Ellerbeck of Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust


In previous CW SIG presentations we have heard about the need and capability to provide patients with smart medical devices that can quantify and curate chronic illnesses. The benefits of empowered patients to gain insight into their day to day rhythms of chronic disease is widely understood. The ability to collect data from medical devices and use that data to enhance treatment and give a predictive insight can give clinicians a window into the patient’s life separate from the clinical visit. With all these benefits, this event asks the question of whether we can trust medical devices from a cyber environment that is intent on penetrating all IT system, from hospitals to baby monitors.

In this regulated risk aware health market, the event will provide a wide insight into what industry, enterprise and authorities are doing to make health solutions safe whilst giving patients the full benefits of being responsibly connected.  Confirmed speakers are:

The Healthcare SIG is championed by Peter Ferguson of ARM, Collette Johnson of Plextek Consulting, David Walker of Philips Research Laboratories and Paul Winter of TTP Group.
