Today's interconnected world has brought numerous advances in health care and with it increased risk.  Connected medical devices are susceptible to multiple vulnerabilities from cyber attacks; the most catastrophic of which is death to those who the intended use of the device is to treat.  Pressure is on medical device developers to identify these vulnerabilities and implement safeguards.  This presentation will explore some of the vulnerabilities and the challenges faced by medical device developers to eliminate or protect the patients for harm.

Rollie Olson is a Systems Engineer with Varian Medical Systems responsible for risk management.  He has over 20 years of experience as a systems engineer in both defense and medical systems.  He worked on the signal processing of the advanced synthetic aperture radar for the US Air Force SR-71 Blackbird, the intel processing for the U-2 Dragonlady, and the command and control for the digitized battlefield for the US Army M2A3 Bradley Fighting Vehicle, before transitioning to work at Varian on radiotherapy systems to eliminate the fear of cancer.
