Global Connected Healthcare Cybersecurity Risks and Roadmap
Join us for the Global Connected Healthcare Cybersecurity Risks and Roadmap workshop cosponsored by IEEE and the Northeast Big Data Innovation Hub on February 24th, 2021 from 11am to 2pm ET. Our keynote speaker is Julian Goldman, MD, Medical Director of Biomedical Engineering at Mass General Brigham Health Systems and Director of the Medical Device Interoperability Program – a multi-institutional federally funded program to advance medical device interoperability to improve patient safety and Health IT innovation. Watch workshop recordings or read the workshop report.
In this workshop, we will assess and address cybersecurity risks in the growing connected healthcare ecosystem and discuss a potential roadmap to address these risks. Risks and threats at the device, data, communications, software, cloud, and system level, as well as interoperability across the system of systems, will be discussed, as well as technology and policy considerations. Learnings will include:
– Understanding security, privacy, ethics and trust risks in connected healthcare and IoT
– Advanced technologies which may be leveraged to address the risk, such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and hardware/firmware/software security advances
– Technology and policy considerations for connected healthcare cybersecurity mitigation
– Software and Hardware Supply Chain Security and proactive risk mitigation that organizations can utilize to better protect themselves in light of events like SolarWinds

Workshop 4: 22 September 2021 – Connected Healthcare Integrated Systems Design
Workshop 5: 17 November 2021 – Connected Healthcare Technology and Policy Considerations
Participants will include healthcare, technology, data science, research, and policy experts in the connected healthcare ecosystem. Professionals and students are welcome to attend.
This series will convene a global community of leaders in healthcare, technology, and policy to develop mutual understanding and recommendations for standards to improve connected healthcare cybersecurity. The workshop series will delve into challenges and opportunities in connected healthcare cybersecurity, privacy, ethics, trust, and identity, including data and device validation and interoperability. Resulting recommendations will include an Integrated Systems Design approach, leveraging the TIPPSS framework being developed by IEEE working groups to enhance Trust, Identity, Privacy, Protection, Safety, and Security of clinical IoT and connected healthcare systems globally. Learnings will include:
– Understanding the risks and threat vectors in connected healthcare and IoT systems
– Advanced technologies which may be leveraged to address the risks, such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and hardware/firmware/software security advances
– Standards efforts and related technology and policy opportunities to address the risks
