MEDICAL DEVICES AND CYBER SECURITY

Medical devices – the risks of cyber attacks!

For health providers, the risk to their patients from a discontinuance of clinical provision, resulting from cyber-attacks on their medical devices is a constant and escalating problem.

Medical Devices are becoming ever more sophisticated and the incorporation of sophisticated technology, increases the both the chances of, and repercussions from these cyber-attacks.

It is also more difficult to manage these devices than conventional corporate systems hardware and software.

How can we help?

We provide consultancy with regards to all aspects of managing medical devices from their purchase from the supplier. This includes each stage through the lifecycle following the asset’s procurement and includes; Supplier Management – assessment of their compliance (clinical, data protection and cybersecurity), testing, installation, monitoring, support and maintenance, training, tracking, replacement and disposal.

The work will ensure that adequate controls are in place to confirm that compliance requirements are met and that robust governance is in place.

An inability to prevent these attacks by not understanding the vulnerabilities and how to put in place adequate defences will not only harm patient provision but could lead to fines from breaches of the General Data Protection Act (GDPR).

In addition, the reputation of the provider may be very well be negatively impacted, with potential loss of business.
