LONDON, November 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

The world of healthcare has greatly benefitted from enhanced connectivity as a by-product of the digital age. However, this benefit has contributed to exposing medical devices and their softwares to cyber attacks. Malicious digital interferences can be significantly detrimental to patient safety.

Cyber security initiatives require attention from various areas for example - systemic and technical perspectives. Security researchers have been uncovering hazardous flaws recently with medical devices to help with awareness on the various intervention methods which may be used. Recent guidance published by the FDA has reinforced the responsibilities expected of medical device software manufacturers in regards to the cyber security of their products.
