D0 N0 H4RM: A Healthcare Security Conversation

Conference:  Defcon 26



Healthcare cybersecurity is in critical condition. That's not FUD, that's the bottom line from the Congressionally mandated Health Care Industry Cybersecurity Task Force report released just last year, a year which also saw the twin specters of WannaCry and NotPetya take down entire hospital systems while over half a million implanted pacemakers were recalled in the fallout of one of the most (ir?)responsible disclosures in recent memory. It's enough to make any concerned white hat reach for a stiff drink. And that's where we come in. After an incredibly successful, near-fire-code-violating jam packed session at DC25 as an Evening Lounge, 'D0 N0 H4rm' is diving deeper and going longer as it transforms into a Fireside Hax, assembling an even larger and more distinguished panel of expert hackers, policymakers, wonks, and health care providers to continue discussing, dissecting, and most importantly, debating the ways to keep patients safe in an increasingly perilous space. Featuring continuous audience interaction and with the same loose and informal flow that characterized the initial, libation rich hotel room gatherings, moderators quaddi and r3plicant invite you to add your voice to this incredibly important conversation. Pin this one down quickly, pre-registration is going to go fast.
