NEW INFRAGARD SAN DIEGO HEALTHCARE SECTOR MEETING

TIME:February 20, 2019 • 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

LOCATION: Members see InfraGard newsletter

AUDIENCE: InfraGard members

DETAILS:The first 2019 meeting of InfraGard San Diego’s Healthcare Sector will feature several timely presentations, including:

  • A panel presentation on the highly publicized San Diego case of thallium poisoning which required a high level of interdisciplinary collaboration between the healthcare, public and environmental health, law enforcement and intelligence disciplines this past year. Thallium is a highly toxic metal with certain radioactive isotopes which can be used for nefarious purposes, as seen in this case study. The panel will feature local experts involved in the response, including the County of San Diego’s Public Health Preparedness and Response Branch, Epidemiology/Bioterrorism and Hazmat Divisions, San Diego County Sheriff’s Department, hospitals and the FBI. They will discuss their roles and how they worked together to achieve successful outcomes.
  • “Implementing Learnings from Medical Device Vulnerability Disclosures” by Vidya Murthy, VP of Operations, MedCrypt. This session will open with a walkthrough of an assessment of ICS-CERT advisories by medical devices and/or healthcare systems, with special attention on the root causes of these advisories. The discussion will include the frequency of disclosures, number of companies issuing advisories, participating device classes, and trends in risk assessment scores. More sophisticated threats will be identified as detection capabilities mature, and this presentation will cover available mitigations and tactical changes that can be implemented by device manufacturers to design security into their products from the onset.

REGISTRATION: Please refer to your weekly InfraGard newsletter for the registration link.
