The security of embedded devices is a pressing concern for society. The rate of new, connected and embedded systems entering the medical devices industry is now so rapid that their impact is unpredictable.

These devices are often able to interact with each other and networks, without human intervention or supervision. The security features that need to be put in place are now much more complex than ever before. About 1 in 6 producers of connected, embedded systems are completely ignoring security at a time when the threat continues to increase.

Our approach to tackling the cybersecurity challenges facing the healthcare industry is two-pronged, focusing on supporting both the security of medical devices and systems and the security of information. We zoom in on the development processes that need to be defined to ensure security further down the line and we ensure the practical application of best practice cybersecurity solutions throughout.
