Here’s a challenge: How can you build security into the life cycle of a medical device at a health system? Also, how do we maintain security while you’re building a dedicated medical device security program? Healthcare technology management (HTM) and Information Security (IS) experts from Intermountain Healthcare, Banner Health and MedStar Health will describe how they’re doing that in their organizations. The speakers will discuss applying the NIST Cybersecurity Framework across the life cycle, detail aspects of procurement, acquisition, operation and maintenance, service contracts, and disposition and techniques to operationalize them. The speakers will also share generalized policies, procedures, HTM/IS workflows, dashboard reports and evaluation methodologies that have been effective to assess their programs.
