  • Overview

    It may seem like a notion better suited to a spy novel than medicine, but medical cardiac devices using wireless technology are vulnerable to security breaches. Dr. William Maisel, director of the Medical Device Safety Institute at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, and Dr. Kevin Fu, co-director of the Medical Device Security Center at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and director of the Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Consortium on Security and Privacy, share their research. They were able to obtain unauthorized access to a pacemaker defibrillator, and more. Find out about this disturbing dilemma with host Dr. Matthew Sorrentino.
