CYBERSECURITY

Solution

We have passwords for your smartphone and laptop, but what about our lifesaving devices like pacemakers or insulin pumps? The federal government released official guidances on medical device cybersecurity steps.

Have a way to monitor and detect cyber security vulnerabilities in their devices.

Understand, assess and detect the level of risk a vulnerability poses to patient safety.

Establish a process for working with cyber security researchers and other stakeholders to receive information about potential vulnerabilities known as a “coordinated vulnerability disclosure policy”.

Deploy mitigations, e.g., software patches to address cybersecurity issues early before they can be exploited and cause harm.
