Medical Device Security Program Development

Develop a security strategy addressing the entire lifecycle of connected medical devices to identify risk early on before disrupting patient care.

Overview

Medical devices don’t follow the same security rules as other networked devices. 

And with more biomedical devices connected to a network than IT devices, often connected to a patient, healthcare organizations face ongoing challenges in securing and remediating these devices. 

CynergisTek can help you develop an effective medical device security program that will not only protect patient health information and sensitive data, but it will also help your organization assure uninterrupted quality care while reducing risk to clinical operations in a managed and secured digital health environment.

Tom Gordon

CIO, Virtua

Security has become a necessary and critical strategic pillar for our organization, and it is too broad and complex for a provider organization to keep up with on their own. Having a partner like CynergisTek with depth and breadth of knowledge and expertise is a crucial asset for our organization. I can’t imagine navigating these issues without them.

CynergisTek’s social engineering and phishing service was an excellent training tool for our organization. A third-party assessment of how our policies and procedures would stack up against a real threat was eye-opening and provided us with valuable information we can leverage to continue to enhance our security posture.

Outcome

An approach built on security best practices that factors in how medical devices interact with the network and patients ensuring that both bioengineering and security are working from the same plan to inventory, track risk, and remediate devices.
