Michael Murray, founder and CEO of Scope Security, joins host John Gilroy on this week’s Federal Tech Talk, a Federal News Network podcast to discuss healthcare cybersecurity and why some devices in hospitals can be vectors for ransomware attacks.
Excerpt from Federal Tech Talk podcast
“There is one time in our lives that we are at our most vulnerable and that’s when we are in the hospital. You don’t go to the hospital when you’re feeling great, you go there when you’re generally in your bad times. If you think about the places we should feel the most secure and most safe that’s really where it is…Every one of your listeners is going to be in a hospital at some point, and I don’t know about you all but, I hope that the next time I’m in a hospital and somebody sticks me inside the tube of a 2 ton spinning magnet to do a CT scan on me that there are no Russians hanging out on that CT scanner messing around with it at that point.”
