The security of both medical devices and healthcare organizations is a growing concern, and the FDA is strongly urging software and hardware companies in the space to develop best-practices and build with security in mind.
A recent report by Suzanne Murrin, Deputy Inspector General for Evaluation and Inspections within HHS, found that the “…FDA has taken steps to address emerging cybersecurity concerns in networked medical devices by issuing guidance, reviewing cybersecurity information in submissions, and—when needed—obtaining additional information from manufacturers. FDA could take additional steps to more fully integrate cybersecurity into its premarket review process.”
