When healthcare systems become more integrated, we should expect medical devices to become targets for cybercriminals to strike. Stolen data pose an apparent threat to the privacy of individuals, which alone is sufficient to cause concern. The medical and healthcare industries need a comprehensive strategy to tackle cyberattacks that could threaten the accuracy, protection, and security of wireless devices. Therefore, medical device cyber security becomes of utmost concern.
Although the need has been on the radar of the industry for years, regulatory action is moving slowly compared to new decryption schemes being developed. Put simply, it is surprisingly complicated to define cybersecurity standards for medical devices. Medical devices are closely controlled, in addition to the normal IT challenges. However, to protect medical devices from data misuse and nefarious invaders, wireless protocols and standards are urgently needed.
The advantages of technology for wireless medical applications are more apparent every day. Both patients and care providers have plenty to benefit from these new developments, from detailed and timely reporting to time savings and cost mitigation. Proven Method will help ensure that the advancement of your medical system uses the latest wireless protection technologies to work as expected from the beginning to commercial implementation.
The approach to producing medical devices by Proven Procedure has always been built on the basis of high performance and quality assurance criteria. These principles direct our practise in product design, manufacturing and procedures, and in the implementation of the risk management framework of ISO 14971:2007. Our development partners trust us to ensure that their products surpass specifications and follow emerging criteria designed to safeguard patients and their records.
In comparison, Validated Method uses many layers of protocols that eliminate the possibility of a security breach involving a newly created medical system. A traceability matrix that has the ability to recognise all possible vulnerability vulnerabilities with a system under construction is potential hazard modelling. This makes it easier to choose well defined specifications with respect to design inputs that can help minimise safety concerns.
In order to remove separate security threats or even compound security risks, the next move is to establish a software framework integrating remediation activities. Guidance from the FDA indicates that during the production of devices subject to Internet security flaws, these practises are integrated.
Finally, the Validated Method uses penetration testing, which is built at various levels to assess software security. In order to demonstrate that the mitigation efforts are working, testing the medical devices at all stages of development is essential to reduce the risk of a cyber attack on a medical device, and Proven Process is committed to implementing protocols that ensure that your next medical device development project is protected from outside threats.
