Med device cybersecurity:  Designing to expect an attack

Speaker:  Garyld Miles, VP of operations and engineering, The Realtime Group

Per recent media reports, medical devices are considered vulnerable and easy to hack, which creates a new security threat that could ultimately lead to patient harm. Additionally, connected devices could compromise patient safety and patient data, and affect business profitability and brand reputation as a result. Since connected devices provide substantial benefits for patients and end users, the potential risks must be proactively managed at design time.

Our current complex cybersecurity threat landscape requires a complex design based threat mitigation approach, focused on prevention at the design level. FDA expectations for mitigation and prevention in the face of these new and numerous threats and vulnerabilities center on the FDA Premarket Cybersecurity Guidance, FDA Postmarket Cybersecurity Guidance, and UL 2900-1. This discussion will address methods of threat prevention through defensive design techniques.
