Re: "the company can't update devices directly"
How they are updated should be a consideration before onboarding any IOT device.

Re: Affected devices
With the sheer number of devices you would need them to check into a hub locally and then check in remotely. Either way thats going to be heavy on network throughput.

Re: "the company can't update devices directly"
Most definitely and I think they should continue to prioritize health objectives ahead of security when medical devices can save lives. But there still needs to be security in mind because if not then those same devices could be used to cause harm.

Updates and repairs
This could prove tricky, he notes, as medical devices are critical and may not be available for updates at any time. Yes. All these devices should get updates remotely. Maybe having spares so no need to wait for the repairs.

Affected devices
For hospitals, the challenging part is finding those affected devices," says Luz. If you're responsible for security at a hospital with 10,000 connected products of different models and vendors, locating the vulnerable ones will be difficult. This would be almost impossible unless devices somehow scan able remotely.

Re: "the company can't update devices directly"
Unfortunately, in many cases such as this I noticed that the HCP is slow to react historically. I agree. Also I do not believe neither hospitals nor medical provided accept dramatic change in their processes so that makes it harder.

Re: "the company can't update devices directly"
This puts the accountability back on the healthcare providers that are providing these devices. I agree. Most these devices were build convenience in mind so security will certainly suffer.
