THaW at the mHealth Privacy & Security Symposium

Perhaps the largest annual event related to mHealth is the mHealth Summit, held near Washington DC.  Today, the summit kicked off with a Privacy & Security Symposium, including a panel on Medical Device Security anchored by both Kevin Fu and Darren Lacey from the THaW team.  Kevin, Darren and the other panelists spoke about some of the security concerns that medical devices pose for patients, clinicians, and hospitals.  The audience brought together a broad mix of medical practitioners, device and software vendors, security professionals, and computer scientists.
