Virtually all initiatives aimed at improving cybersecurity in the Internet of Things (IoT) have emphasized the role of security updates and patches.  Put simply, when a device connected to the IoT lacks the latest security updates, it is more prone to malware and other threats.  In this panel, a diverse group of experts will discuss technical, operational, and other challenges to IoT security updatability and multi-faceted efforts within the public and private sector at addressing these challenges to create a more secure IoT ecosystem.

7:15 – 8:15 p.m.         Incorporating Cybersecurity into the DNA of Telehealth

Telehealth involves the use of telecommunication technologies to prevent and treat illness and promote the health of individuals and populations.  Although telehealth has particular benefits for rural and underserved populations, it is increasingly recognized for its potential to control costs and improve outcomes.  To realize its full potential, patients and providers must trust telehealth systems to keep personal information private and secure.  A panel of experts will identify security risks of telehealth systems and discuss standards, guidelines, best practices, and frameworks for stakeholders to adopt a culture of cybersecurity risk management.
