Medical Device Security Threat Predictions for 2018

Mon, 08 Jan 2018 18:48:25 +0000

Last November Kapersky Labs made some medical device security predictions for 2018 on their SecureList security bulletin. Kapersky has forgotten more about security than I know, but my understanding of health care and the medical device world allows me to offer some perspective and corrections to Kapersky's predictions.

On October 5, 2017 H.R. 3985: Internet of […]

Years ago, many hospitals bought an Emergin messaging middleware system as a point solution to bring messaging to specific interfaced systems.
