Medical Devices & Cyber Security

With more medical devices using wireless connections and medical providers using the internet to connect with patients,the risk of biomedical devices being hacked is a realized concern. Medical Devices are able to be tracked with GPS locational positionings, can be tracked from almost anywhere in the world.
Hearing Aid devices to Heart defibrillators can be activated for de-activated in a click.
While the uses of remote control over a medical device open many people to health care in remote or even shut-in patients; the risk is still in the minds of service providers, and their patients.
