Premarket and postmarket cybersecurity for connected medical devices
45% of healthcare executives see a signiﬁcant risk in IoT devices, and with just reason. A connected drug pump attacked through memory overflow could allow attackers to tamper with the device, damaging its integrity and threatening patients’ lives. Similarly, a blood-gas analyzer infiltrated by malware could lead to lateral movement and extraction of sensitive patient data. Attacks like these not only pose threats to patients but also make device developers and health providers liable, damaging their reputation and shareholder equity.
