The Medical Device Innovation, Safety and Security consortium is hoping its new worldwide network of labs for the standardized cyber testing of medical devices will help to greatly reduce risks to data and patient safety, says Dale Nordenberg, M.D., executive director of MDISS and Benjamin Esslinger of Eskenazi Health.”In the recent 12 to 18 months, it’s become increasingly clear that healthcare systems have a need … to be executing active testing of medical devices – penetration testing and other interrogations,” Nordenberg says in an interview with Information Security Media Group.”We thought at this time it was very important for us to work with the healthcare systems to develop standardized operating procedures and best practices for how they could interrogate these devices … but also how they would manage the coordinated disclosure of any vulnerabilities they might discover.”
