The CyberMed Summit
The CyberMed Summit is a symposium focused on challenges in healthcare cybersecurity featuring notable voices in public policy, security research, healthcare delivery, and medical device manufacturing, with a particular emphasis on the clinical ramifications of cybersecurity vulnerabilities.
Over the previous three years, the CyberMed Summit has brought together stakeholder collaborators to discuss and devise solutions for these challenges, working through real-time clinical simulations of “hacked” medical devices and table-top exercises tackling how hospitals might react to major cyber crises. Speakers at past events have included FDA leadership, leading medical device security researchers, and IT teams of prestigious healthcare delivery organizations.
CyberMed Sessions: Cybersecurity Informed Consent
at The George Washington University
Smaller events deemed “CyberMed Sessions” allow for exploration of more focused and curated topics for specifically targeted audiences. The George Washington University in Washington, D.C. will be hosting a CyberMed Session on Wednesday, June 3rd, 2020. Bridging two prominent events in the world of information security and privacy - the International Conference on Cyber Engagement, and the Privacy Law Scholars Conference.
Cybersecurity Informed Consent
More research is needed to determine which cybersecurity-informed consent approach best addresses the unique hurdles of digital medicine. Having a clear, concise informed-consent process can be challenging in light of clinician inexperience, as well as uncertainty regarding the true level of risk posed to patients by connected technologies (and the potential for these risks to fluctuate over time). As connected medical interventions offer personalization of care and expanded accessibility, so too will an effective cyber-informed consent empower clinicians and patients in goal-affirming healthcare decision-making
