The healthcare industry is being transformed by IoT. Patient monitoring, drug administration, and payment processing are just a few examples of how connected devices are revolutionizing the delivering of healthcare.

These mission critical devices introduce major challenges for IT security teams responsible for securing patient records, protecting PII, and meeting a myriad of compliance regulations, all in geographically distributed locations with very limited security staff.

Join us for this exciting webinar with Tony Sager, Director of SANS Innovation Center and leader of the development of the CIS Controls. Tony and Pwnie Express experts will discuss IoT Security in healthcare and provide a framework for adapting IT security programs to address the risks and threats associated with medical connected devices.
