When Arbor Network's Paul Bowen looks at the IoT threat to healthcare, he's concerned about how medical devices are conceived, created and connected. And he says device manufacturers are dangerously behind the maturity curve when compared to threats actors.

In an interview at Information Security Media Group's recent Healthcare Security Summit in New York, Bowen discusses:

  • The most common advanced threats preying on healthcare entities;
  • The sophisticated infrastructure behind today's top threats;
  • How criminals are using breached data to commit fraud and hone their subsequent attacks.

Bowen brings to Arbor Networks more than 20 years of experience as a security practitioner. His current focus is on advanced threat detection and mitigation with Arbor's new Spectrum Platform. Previously, Bowen spent a decade managing global security for Estée Lauder, and another decade at ArcSight, before and during the HP acquisition. He also previously worked at Mendicant and Fortinet.
