Re: Confident? - One word answer
Merck.

Yeah, they were probably confident in April of this year - not so much anymore.

decision makers report they are "confident", not any more
"Three-quarters of IT decision makers report they are "confident" or "very confident"

Hearing about all the security issues we deal with it is very hard to say "very confident", all the hits only adding more limitation to the potential design of a product.

You cannot protect what you can't see
Absolutely agree. Today in this world we have 30 billion web pages and more than 1 million mobile apps - Lord knows how secure these are or what kind of harm they cause discreetly.

Especially when it comes to health, it scares me! Big giants like IBM, CISCO may eventually find a way to make them secure but the question is are they reachable to the common man?

Re: Health Care is Unhealthy IT
the health care profession is in the best position to implement a healthier work environment among its employees, because it is the health professionals who are telling the rest of us how to eat, exercise, decrease stress, and live more balanced lives.

Health Care is Unhealthy IT
When I had my managed services business in 2014, several of my worst clients were health care - doctors, dentists and they had abysmal appreciation of IT in general, security in particular even though HIPPA ruled their lives.  My best advise was mostly ignored and some hated to pay me as well.  Worst clients of the lot.

AI in security
 

"The No. 1 challenge is gaining visibility into this. You cannot protect what you can't see."

I agree with this, that is why we need AI in monitoring of security vulnerabilities I would say.

Is it IOT?
 

"One of the key differences is that security patches and updates can be pushed to a mobile device, but the same is usually not the case for IoT medical devices that cannot receive software pushed to them"

If this is the case, should we still consider it IoT?

door bell security
 

"A lot of IoT medical devices are not protected and secure, so they are easier to gain access and control,"

This makes sense, most of IoT devices is designed to get a simple task done, not giving enough attention of security of it. Like let's assume, my door bell is hacked and ringed may times at night. That is all damage it can cause.

IoT
 

"Typically you will see 10 to 15 IoT devices per bed in a hospital"

So everything connected is IoT any more, I was always considering those small devices we use. A car is also portable but I do not think anything consider it IoT.

Confident?
 

"Three-quarters of IT decision makers report they are "confident" or "very confident""

Confident? This shows a disconnect, once they get hit there will not be any evidence of confidence in their mind.

It was a year of new twists on old threats, with fears of another WannaCry-type worm and of a possible botnet army of Wi-Fi routers. But 2019 also underscored the risk of firmware and trusted security tools harboring dangerous holes that cybercriminals and nation-state hackers could readily abuse. Read more.
