HTMLive! When Life Support needs Life Support – Legacy Devices

Upcoming Courses


Legacy Equipment is a pervasive issue. The Legacy question is a Problem for both Manufacturers and Healthcare Delivery Organizations.  39% of IOT and 53% or Medical Devices today are Legacy (Forescout, 2019).  The complexity of the Healthcare Sector has led to a unique challenge in healthcare industry where managing legacy devices is critical to healthcare delivery, especially with a moderate amount of contention about who is responsible.  

Keeping in mind that the IMDRF has defined Legacy Medical Device: medical devices that cannot be reasonably protected against current cybersecurity.  That has led to an unique vulnerability posture across the industry.  Because of that, the Healthcare Sector Coordinating Council (HSCC) has developed Health Industry Cybersecurity – Managing Legacy Technology Security (HIC-MaLTS) which defines shared responsibility and tasks for mitigating risk for currently installed devices, and those in development.   It has quickly become a go to resource for CISO’s, Product Security People, and the HTM industry. 


In this session you will learn: 

  1. What is HIC-MaLTS?
  2. Who should use it?
  3. The 4 Core Pillars: Governance, Communications, Cyber Risk Management and Future Proofing.
  4. How to address the common legacy risk management challenges?
  5. What is the “Responsibility Transfer Framework”?
  6. Patching and Lifecycle Recommendations.
