Are your medical devices as secure as you think?
Medical devices are increasingly connected to networks, other devices, and the internet. This leads to an increase in the risk of potential cybersecurity threats. These vulnerabilities can potentially impact the safety and effectiveness of the device. With this in mind, medical devices have been listed as one of the top five cybersecurity threats by the HHS. Yet, still, an estimated 70% of medical devices are running outdated Windows operating systems that are no longer supported.
That’s why you need a strong security plan with goals for every medical asset and application in your network. You must understand how well-protected and resilient to attack each medical device you have deployed is, including in relation to the networks the medical devices are on.
To fully understand the risk associated with your medical devices, you’ll need a comprehensive cybersecurity assessment of your medical device network environment and medical devices, in the context of their potential vulnerabilities, as well as your organizational guidelines, compliance needs, and use cases.
