As health care moves into a new era of increasing information vulnerability, radiologists should understand that their confidential medical data can be stolen, or that they may be using systems that are exposed to altered data or data that contain malicious elements. This webinar will discuss the vulnerabilities of medical (DICOM) images and DICOM servers, discuss requirements to properly secure medical images, and provide recommendations on how to best protect medical images and radiology practices from cyberattacks.

This webinar was designed by a top team of radiologists, cybersecurity experts, and DICOM security leaders, offering a unique combination of expertise in this field. The team includes both the cybersecurity researchers / hackers who have identified recent DICOM vulnerabilities, and the official defenders of the DICOM format, responsible for maintaining its security.

Learning Outcomes

After attending this session, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss recent cyber breaches and cyberattacks involving medical images.
  • Articulate the core principles of security as they apply to medical data and medical images.
  • Describe a few concepts of the DICOM standard relevant to security.
  • Explain basic concepts about confidentiality, integrity and availability of medical images, and ways these can prevent cyber breaches and cyberattacks.
  • Recognize the role of major players, including radiologists, in maintaining the security of medical images.
