Webinar: Windows Are Closing on Medical Devices

Webinar: Windows Are Closing on Medical Devices

On January 14, 2020, Microsoft will end support for Windows 7, Windows 2008, and Windows Mobile, leaving untold millions of Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) devices vulnerable to new exploits that can no longer be resolved with security patches.

Join us as BlackBerry Cylance VP of Consulting Sales Pedro Vidal, and Sr. Director of Product Management Mike Bruchanski, assess the implications for medical device makers, healthcare delivery organizations (HDOs), and the patients who rely upon them for quality care.

Now Available: On-Demand Webinar
Length: 1 Hour

Among other topics, Pedro and Mike will discuss:

  • Why medical device hacking has become the primary cyber concern for device makers and healthcare organizations, according to a recent Ponemon Institute report;
  • The types of medical devices most likely to be affected; and
  • How BlackBerry Cylance is working with device makers and HDOs to minimize these vulnerabilities and close these security gaps.
