Secure and Protect Your Biomedical Devices

CynergisTek’s medical device cybersecurity services help multiple stakeholders including, IT, Security, and Clinical Engineering understand the number and type of biomedical devices connected to the network, those that contain ePHI and the security vulnerabilities of these devices. Biomedical devices do not follow the same rules as other networked devices; therefore, we help:

  • Develop a cybersecurity strategy around biomedical devices
  • Manage the many devices connected to the network
  • Remediate identified risks on these devices

An effective medical device cybersecurity program will not only protect patient health information and sensitive data, it will help your organization assure uninterrupted quality care while reducing risk to clinical operations in a managed and secured digital health environment.

Medical Device Cybersecurity Services

Through CynergisTek’s medical device cybersecurity services, your organization will have visibility into biomedical devices that once were hard to identify, manage, secure, and remediate.

Biomedical Device Security Risk Assessment

An extensive three-prong assessment approach to include:

  • Biomedical Device Security Technical Assessment – a comprehensive inventory of networked biomedical devices and their associated vulnerabilities.
  • Biomedical Device Security Program Assessment – an evaluation of security controls and an identification of gaps or vulnerabilities in the management practices for biomedical device security.
  • Biomedical Device Risk Management Strategy – a strategy articulating different risk categories and a remediation roadmap to address the different categories and their unique issues/vulnerabilities.

The State of Medical Device Cybersecurity

  • Digital health is transforming healthcare, making care more convenient, coordinated and responsive to the needs of patients. And with this endeavor, biomedical devices are rapidly being introduced into a hospital’s network and it has become difficult to keep up with the speed of deployment and security and management of these devices.
  • Biomedical devices are more connected than ever before resulting in increased vulnerabilities, new threat vectors, greater risk to patient care and to the protection of patient data.
  • Biomedical device manufacturers often do not provide the support needed to ensure systems are updated to address known vulnerabilities.
  • Healthcare organizations, typically have more biomedical devices connected to the network than the number of standard networked IT devices. These devices are sometimes connected to a patient and may go online and offline multiple times a day, making it difficult to secure and remediate the device.
  • Typical IT scan solutions are unable to capture the unique identities associated with medical devices such as medical device type, brand name, serial number, software version, whether the device stores ePHI and what other systems or devices it communicates with.

What Our Clients Say

Having a partner that is actively monitoring our systems, trends, local and global threats not only saves the Virtua IT Security team time, but provides us with the ability to proactively look at potential threats to plan accordingly. The partnership with CynergisTek has allowed us to focus on compliance, developing risk programs, policy and procedures leading to a culture focused on making us more secure.

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.
