 how secure are devices from malware?
As devices become more complex and more interconnected to networks, the possibility of vulnerability to malicious code and/or hardware becomes just as real for medical/forensic equipment as for the banking industry or the electric power grid, with potentially life-threatening consequences. Are standards evolving to keep pace with this threat? Are devices being subjected to the same scrutiny for vulnerabilities as in those other industries? This is not to diminish the importance of vigilance in protecting against data theft, but the possibility of other kinds of attacks on health IT needs to be kept in mind.
