Cylance at HIMSS

The diversity of healthcare IT ecosystems magnifies the problem of securing endpoints and the critical systems they are connected to. Enterprise workstations in offices, Linux/Solaris systems in the laboratory, Macs in the PR department, tablets and smartphones, all manner of legacy systems, and an ever-expanding number of Internet of Things (IoT) devices worn by - or implanted in - patients.

Come by booth #445 to learn more about the Medical Device and Clinical IoT landscape as it relates to the application of cybersecurity, risk reduction, and attack mitigation. ​We will have multiple in-booth presentations every day of the show, including:

  • Sara Lofgren on Securing IoT Devices
  • Richard Melick discussing Cybercrime and The Medical World
  • Shane Shellenbarger covering Exploit Development and Exploit Prevention
  • Jeff Warren exploring Prevention vs. Detection in Cyber Security

Additional Speaking Session

Join Rob Bathurst, Managing Director of Healthcare and Life Sciences at Cylance, and a top-shelf panel of experts who will discuss the recently released NHS Best Practice Guidelines and their application in the Health IT environment.

Learn more about antivirus/ anti-malware strategies, digital authentication, continuous monitoring, and more in this session titled Healthcare Industry Cybersecurity: Protecting Patients which takes place on Tuesday, February 12th, from 2pm-3pm ET at the BD booth (#2145).

Bathurst has 14 years of security experience and 6 years of healthcare-focused security and engineering knowledge. He helped design and build Mayo Clinic’s proactive security services, and also developed one of the first standardized testing methodologies for medical devices.

He will be joined by fellow panelists Mike Nelson, VP of IoT Security at Digicert, and Justine Bone, CEO at MedSec. The session will be moderated by David Scott, product security officer at Becton Dickinson (BD).
