Usernix Enigma 2016 - Hacking Health: Security in Healthcare IT Systems

A great talk by Avi Rubin - slightly sarcastic at times - on the IT security in the healthcare industry, a particularly challenging industry when it comes to security.

Avi even mentions an argument I was opposed once when doing a security assessment for a hospital: "if it delays us by 5 seconds, it will cost lives."
