"Firewalls are not enough.... there are no crashproof cars, just like there are no crashproof medical devices, so instead we need to make sure medical devices are RESILIENT, even if adversaries are inside hospital networks" - Prof. Kevin Fu, PhD

How Do You Protect Your Brand and Your Patients from Cybersecurity Risks?

Maintaining Cybersecurity Protects Your Patients, your Pre-Market Review Preparedness And Your Reputation

As healthcare becomes completely connected, and the expectations of regulators and customers continue to rise, there is new urgency around the need for effective cybersecurity management to mitigate the ever-increasing risks of intentional and unintentional harm to the safety and effectiveness of devices.

Healthcare providers are facing increasing challenges with using a wide variety of devices and technology safely and securely, as their networks face continued increases in threats. Patient safety is threatened by devices that are not protected.

In order to bring new devices to market, manufacturers will need cost-effective strategies to manage cybersecurity risks in a balanced manner. They are recognizing the need to implement cybersecurity safeguards in every phase of the design and manufacture of medical devices. They face further challenges as rapidly changing cybersecurity standards and regulations put more pressure on them.
