Abstract

The synthesis of information technology into the healthcare industry is creating an environment that is conducive to security and privacy challenges for both industry and academia. As a result, this minitrack is dedicated to reporting the state-of-the-art and recent advancements in this problem domain. Hence, research in this minitrack will examine various responses to these challenges including ‘MedDevRisk: Risk Analysis Methodology for Networked Medical Devices’ and ‘Understanding users’ health information privacy concerns for health wearables’. These research contributions highlight the growing need to investigate and address security and privacy concerns in the context of the healthcare industry, especially in light of recent events such as the WannaCry ransomware attack.
