This week’s conversation featured Northeastern University School of Law Professor, Andrea Matwyshyn. In addition to her appointment on the law faculty, she is a professor of computer science (by courtesy), and co-director of the law school’s Center for Law, Innovation, and Creativity (CLIC).

An expert on cybersecurity and healthcare, Andrea helped us understand the changing approaches of federal regulatory agencies. We discussed the range of cybersecurity threats, from the science fictional to the all-too-factual scourge of ransomware. We also covered the continued threats from the Internet of Health Things and how the market and policymakers must find ways to reward developers for producing safe and secure code. We ended with a brief discussion (unlikely to be our last) of Blockchain as a security model, given current enthusiasm for algorithmic data management and smart contracts in the health policy space.
