SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The IoTC (IoT Community) – the world’s largest group of CxOs and IoT professionals, announces Great Bay Software, as a corporate member of the IoTC and Premier partner for the IoT Health Slam virtual conference taking place on-line in the cloud December 2, 2016.
At the virtual event, Manish will present a core session highlighting how according to a report from MarketResearch.com, millions of new Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) will be added to health systems. The market segment is poised to hit $117 billion by 2020. Medical device manufacturers have traditionally focused on patient safety and time-to-market, rather than security. Long FDA approval cycles mean that approved devices are often running outdated operating systems versions with known vulnerabilities and limited or no patching ability. This lack of adequate security in IoT and IoMT is why Gartner is predicting that by 2020, 25% of all enterprise breaches will involve IoT. Securing IoMT requires close collaboration between biomedical and IT teams, and a plan to address three core areas of IoMT security – physical, connection, and data. This session will focus on practical steps to improving IoMT security without expensive infrastructure upgrades or wholesale legacy medical device replacements.

“We are delighted to join the IoTC - IoT Community as a corporate member and are excited to participate in the Health Slam virtual event,” said Manish Rai, VP of Marketing at Great Bay Software. “Years of underinvestment in security and high value of patient health information combined with poor inbuilt security in IoMT devices have made healthcare a top target for data breaches. We look forward to engaging with members of the IoT Community on December 2nd to share our experiences and explore together how to leverage IoT for transformative benefit to healthcare without compromising security.”
