The federal government, device manufacturers and healthcare delivery organizations have all raised their games to address medical device security.

In a video interview at Information Security Media Group's recent Healthcare Security Summit in New York, Schwartz discusses:

- Patients' role in the ongoing debate;
- The device security outlook for 2020.
