IoT devices are everywhere, helping organizations collect real-time data and automate tasks for greater efficiency. This is especially true in healthcare and life sciences, where scientists rely on a diverse set of smart devices to get their work done, including automated liquid handling robots, refrigeration sensors, cameras, and mass spectrometers. These devices are often unpatched, unmanaged, and invisible to IT teams ' making them soft targets for adversaries seeking to gain access to corporate networks in order to steal sensitive intellectual property or deploy ransomware. Further increasing the attack surface and risk are other unmanaged IoT and BYOD devices like smart watches, raspberry PIs, and gaming consoles. In this educational webinar led by a former Global Information Security Officer & Risk Manager at a global pharmaceutical and life sciences organization, we'll describe the challenges of securing these unmanaged devices along with practical strategies for reducing their risk ' without deploying agents or interfering with lab operations.
