Two decades ago, Ann Sheldon was drawn to Medtronic by its mission to create devices that people. Today, Sheldon, vice president of security, heads a team that assumes an increasingly essential mission of protecting those devices – and the patient they help – from outsiders that might want to disrupt their performance.
