Bringing Zero Trust to Industrial IOT

Session Abstract: Traditional security offers a castle-and-moat or perimeter approach to assess whether connections are trustworthy and should be given access, but the current industrial control systems (ICS) ecosystem requires a different approach. Zero Trust reminds us that the information security perimeter never really existed. The pace of attacks, and ubiquity of IIoT is forcing us to improve our cyber-resilience quickly. This talk addresses how to bring Zero Trust to the ICS world: the benefits, the challenges, architectural constraints, planning and sizing the effort, success criteria, and future evolution. We will present a model for Zero Trust success, revealing how...

Remotely Provided Outpatient Services for seasonal and chronic illnesses without a medically attendant with the patient

Session Abstract: The US healthcare industry is fragmented. The “public outcry” is for better access and lower costs to healthcare. Providers are starved to increase revenue and optimize EBIT to remain viable. Patients face an increasing shortage of primary care physicians with reduced patient access to healthcare, except for consults which are: inadequate, often inconvenient, or unavailable — resulting in low-acuity cases being treated in high-cost settings; plus, the system must deal with cancellations, and available out-of-network providers. While suburbia seeks convenience, rural and urban blight areas seek access in their neighborhoods. The need was defined by a healthcare executive...
