Managing Medical Device Cybersecurity Vulnerabilities

HIMSS18: Protecting Data & Devices

Tuesday, March 6, 2018, 8:30AM–9:30AM PT
Location: Marcello 4401, Session 11

Medical device cybersecurity continues to evolve. Multiple initiatives are working to improve device cybersecurity, to include development of a Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) rubric to assess device vulnerability impact and severity; the use of Information Sharing and Analysis Organizations (ISAOs) to help broker medical device vulnerability management; maturing coordinated disclosure processes; device cybersecurity criteria development and testing; and table top exercises to validate vulnerability handling procedures. This session will characterize these initiatives, as well as the relevant FDA and community roles, in helping to realize safer, more secure device clinical operation and use.
