Although the medical device industry is becoming more attuned to cyber risks all the time, the potential damages are often thought of in terms of the release of personal information or other large-scale data breaches. What is lesser known, but no less treacherous, are the risks of property damage and bodily injury from cyber vulnerabilities and software defects in medical devices. In this webinar, Terry Dunlap—founder and CEO of Tactical Network Solutions, a company specializing in cyber risk mitigation of IoT and other connected devices—describes how medical devices can be conduits of products liability losses, and what designers and manufacturers of these devices can do to protect patients and property.
This webinar will address:
- The internet of things (IoT) in hospitals and healthcare settings
- Case studies of cyber risks causing bodily injury
- What medical device companies can do to best protect themselves and the users of these devices
Terry Dunlap spent over five years as an intelligence analyst, programmer, trainer, and speaker with the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) before starting Tactical Network Solutions in 2007.
Back then, his company provided military units, the intelligence community, and law enforcement agencies the means to collect, analyze, and exploit data from embedded devices for actionable intelligence as well as the ability to conduct low-profile computer network operations in high-risk/denied areas.
Today his company specializes in cyber risk mitigation of IoT and other connected devices. Through meticulous examination of the heart and soul of IoT devices — firmware — Mr. Dunlap’s company discovers hidden attack vectors that place IoT devices squarely into the crosshairs of hackers.
Prior to his NSA experience, Mr. Dunlap held network security positions at Western Kentucky University and Deloitte & Touche, LLP. Prior to that Mr. Dunlap worked at Fidelity Investments.
Mr. Dunlap earned a Master of Science in Network Security from Capitol College (now Capitol Technology University) and a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Economics from Case Western Reserve University.
