Judd Larson on Extortion as a Threat Vector in the Medical Device Industry.
“Many threat vectors have been assessed in the medical device world, but there is no available work on extortion as a threat vector. By mapping the extortion attack surface area of a given medical device, understanding the threat actors, and looking into how the exploits would happen, I made a tool to help understand the problem better. My hope is that a medical device company would use this information to roll extortion threat assessment into their existing safety evaluations.” – Judd Larson
Judd on Judd: “Medical device security and the complications surrounding it are particularly fascinating to me. l’m a recent graduate from the University of MN with a MS Medical Device Innovation and a Cybersecurity minor. The talk topic is from my capstone project.”
