Why is secure medical equipment disposal so important?
Bloomberg Business recently reported the Mayo Clinic assembled an all-star team of about a dozen computer jocks, investigators from some of the biggest cyber-security firms in the country, as well as the kind of hackers who draw crowds at conferences such as Black Hat and Def Con. The researchers split into teams and hospital officials presented them with about 40 different medical devices. Do your worst, the researchers were instructed and the results surprised even the experts, “They were all bad, really bad” said Billy Rios a former U.S. Marine and veteran of the war in Iraq. In the Marines, Rios worked in a signal intelligence unit and afterward took a position at the Defense Information Systems Agency and has since tinkered with weapons systems, aircraft components and even with the electrical grid… basically hacking into a public utility district in the state of Washington to illustrate potential risks and offer suggestions on how they might improve public safety.
Please note” The Mayo Clinic emerged from those sessions with a fresh set of security requirements for its medical device suppliers, requiring that each device be tested to meet standards before purchasing contracts were signed… the paragraph above was taken from a recent Bloomberg Business article.
