The security challenge of connected medical devices
45% of healthcare executives see a signiﬁcant risk in Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) 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 patient 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 leave device manufacturers and health providers liable for any damages, posing reputational, monetary and legal risks. Whether stationary, ambient, wearable or implanted devices, they must all be secure.
Strategic imperative for the entire healthcare ecosystem
The recent proliferation in the number of connected medical device vulnerabilities and offensive activities has pushed customers and regulatory agencies to rapidly increase their demands for improved medical device security. At the same time, it has significantly increased the security-related risks to the business, reputation and bottom-line of medical device manufacturers and vendors. As a result, this has become a strategic imperative which requires companies to quickly scale up their ability to provide optimal device security.
