Cyber security for healthcare solutions and medical devices

In today’s electronic world, cybersecurity in healthcare and protecting information is vital for the normal functioning of organizations. Many healthcare organizations have various types of specialized hospital information systems, as well as heterogeneous medical devices to manage. In that context both IT (Information Technology) and OT (Operation Technology) assets are considered as critical from different perspective, incl. human safety, and are requiring the implementation of best security practices from any stakeholders involved in the development, integration, operation, and maintenance activities.

Relevant US and EU authorities recently developed new regulatory framework and guidance for implementing best security practices. Depending from stakeholders’ role, different reference document and requirements have been derived from generic State-of-the-Art document such as ISO 27000 standard series for Information security, or ISA/IEC 62443 standard series for operational cyber security (incl. medical devices).

The five most efficient cyber defenders are: Anticipation, Education, Detection, Reaction and Resilience.

Do remember: Cybersecurity is much more than an IT topic.
