Medical Device Security Risk Assessment

CynergisTek’s Medical Device Security Risk Assessment signifies the primary phase of our robust Medical Device Security-as-a-service offering, which serves as an enterprise approach to improving an organization’s ongoing security and risk management program for medical devices.

Medical Device Security Management

CynergisTek’s Medical Device Security Management service is built to address the security aspects related to each component of the medical device lifecycle including policy development, pre-acquisition procedures, implementation and security control setup, identifying and reporting vulnerabilities, and coordinating remediation in conjunction with the device maintenance schedule.

In order to successfully support organizations during each step of the process, CynergisTek’s Medical Device Security Management services are presented in three stages:

Risk Assessment

An initial in-depth assessment of the organizational policies, procedures, technical security controls, and tools in place to support the secure management of medical devices across the enterprise. Findings from the risk assessment will provide the organization with a prioritized blueprint for developing and implementing the required policies, procedures, and best practices.

Program Development

One-time service intended to remediate and mature the organization’s medical device security and risk management program. This includes developing the foundational procedures required to support medical device security best practices.

Program Management

Continuous services performing ongoing activities in support of the secure management of medical device.

A benefit to having CynergisTek’s Medical Device Security Management service is having our team act as the interface between IT/Security, Clinical Engineering, and Supply Chain/Procurement, and as extra sets of eyes to oversee such a critical and yet constantly evolving element in healthcare operations.
