Securing the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT): The Checks and Balances for Cybersecurity Readiness

Large or small, cyberattacks are making headlines and elevating executive attention toward cyber resiliency. During this session, we will explore security considerations for developing cyber resilience covering security fundamentals and readiness planning to protect your IT and OT environments. Best practices for security include

  • Visibility. You can’t protect what you can’t see. Awareness of any device, anywhere on the network. Determine degree of trust and continuously monitoring behavior to maintain level of trust.
  • Control. Enforcing security across the network. Dependent on each system and subsystem doing its job and only it’s job.
  • Awareness. Actionable intelligence built on continuous analysis. Continuous analysis of behaviors: learning what, where, when, who, how – leading to actionable intelligence about known and unknown threats.
