Second Annual Virtual HIoT Summit 2020

Healthcare IoT Cybersecurity and Intelligence Company Brings Together Brightest Minds in the Industry to Converge on the Latest Technology Challenges in Healthcare

Cylera, the leading healthcare IoT (HIoT) cybersecurity and analytics company, announced today the company's second annual virtual HIoT Summit 2020, which will take place from 10 a.m. ET - 5 p.m. ET on Tuesday, July 14, 2020.

“The HIoT Summit is designed to foster education, collaboration, innovation, and discuss needed improvements for patient safety and medical device security,” said Richard Staynings, Chief Security Strategist, Cylera.

“By assembling some of the top medical and security minds in the industry at a single conference, we have almost guaranteed some forthright exchanges of ideas by speakers all of whom work in the industry. In fact most are facing similar problems of how to secure their hospitals with everything currently going on and a rapid and sudden transition towards remote digital care, which includes a huge rise in the use of healthcare IoT.”

As healthcare organizations continue to prioritize patient safety, security, and privacy, many overlook the very real vulnerabilities and threats that are imposed on healthcare organizations by medical and other HIoT devices. At the upcoming HIoT Summit 2020, audiences will hear from CIOs, CMIOs, CISOs, and experts from leading healthcare systems to explore the current and future utility of HIoT, AI, cybersecurity, and connected medical devices.

“The healthcare industry is largely unaware of the extent of the medical IoT ecosystem within institutions and is ill-prepared to manage a multitude of patches and security updates for each device, let alone try and keep devices that were never designed with security in mind actually safe for patient use,” said Esmond Kane, CISO at Steward Health.

“These devices are often used by hospitals or other medical providers for 15-20 years before finally being replaced with something newer and hopefully more secure. What's more, this legacy device problem has by and large not yet been addressed by the majority of providers, and unfortunately adversaries know this. My panel at the upcoming HIoT Summit will be talking about these and other issues and sharing a few tips of what each of us have found works. In today's digital healthcare world, cybersecurity and patient safety are tightly linked so finding solutions to these problems should be a priority for all of us.”

This unique event brings together some of the best minds in the industry to discuss how we can move forward securely.

  • Brave New World: Patient Safety, IoT, and Risk Analytics Post-COVID-19 - Keynote
