Symantec, along with Mocana and Codenomicon, will host the “Amphion Forum: Medical“ at the MD&M Conference in Minneapolis on Nov. 3. The summit consists of technology leaders who will address security breaches, hacks and vulnerabilities recently reported in a range of electronic medical devices.

“Security has always been a digital health issue, but traditionally security requirements have been driven by the regulatory requirement to protect electronic health records (EHR),“ said Adrian Turner, CEO of Mocana. “The issue has taken on new urgency, however, since recent demonstrations of wireless hacks on devices like implanted insulin pumps and defibrillators.“

Attendees of the event will participate in interactive sessions that will explore the most innovative ideas for realizing the potential of the “Internet of Things“ in healthcare. Event organizers say they want to create a “World Economic Forum-type“ environment where experts can share their ideas for solving the problems facing the global device infrastructure.
