Security and Privacy in Internet of Medical Things

Speaker:  Varun G Menon – Kochi, Kerala, India
Topic(s):  Security and Privacy


The Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) is an ecosystem of connected sensors, wearable medical devices and clinical systems. Application of IoMT has helped in improving the quality of medical treatment with reduced cost and timely delivery of responses. Driven largely by advances in internet of things, wireless communications, ad hoc networks, sensor networks, mobile devices, big data analytics, and cloud and fog computing, IoMT is rapidly improving the efficiency of diagnosis, treatment and patient monitoring in healthcare industry.
While IoMT offers several benefits, the ubiquitously connected devices also raise serious security and privacy concerns. Healthcare applications and systems collect and process sensitive and often life-critical medical information and make critical decisions based on this information. Cybercriminals targeting the vulnerabilities in these IoMT devices can not only gain potential entry into the hospital network but also obtain unauthorized access to sensitive personal and healthcare information. Attacks on these connected devices can also cause significant physical harm and life-threatening damage to the patients. The talk will discuss the current issues and challenges in ensuring security and privacy in IoMT.
Topics covered in the lecture are,
Introduction to IoMT
Latest applications with IoMT
Importance of security and privacy in IoMT applications
Current issues and challenges in security and privacy with IoMT application
