Body Computing, Security & Human Safety

Last year, over 100 massive security breaches impacted millions of consumers like you. In healthcare, these security breaches become more personal - and dangerous - as technology increasingly integrates with our bodies via wearables, prosthetics and medical devices. It’s high time clinicians, innovators, patient advocates and government agencies collaboratively design a safer ecosystem: looking beyond our data to proactively protect people from a new violation: the hacking of the human body.

Additional Supporting Materials


  1. How can we build proactive cyber protections into digital health to protect people's data and personal safety, and limit damage from breaches?
  2. What parts of digital medical care and delivery are the most vulnerable today, and why? What are the real risks body computing-related breaches?
  3. What can we learn from national security agencies about how to mitigate risk and create a safer ecosystem, not just for health data, but for PEOPLE?
