Stop Chasing Vulnerability Ghosts: Why efficient vulnerability detection is essential to medical device security

Stop Chasing Vulnerability Ghosts: Why efficient vulnerability detection is essential to medical device security

To detect and correct vulnerabilities, eliminate false positives and prioritize the rest.

Every embedded system device maker should want to make security a selling point, preventing breaches or exploits, not an embarrassment if a security problem occurs. But nothing equals the liability and regulatory risk associated with medical devices.

Medical Devices:  Automated Vulnerability Monitoring for Streamlined FDA Security Compliance

Medical Devices: Automated Vulnerability Monitoring for Streamlined FDA Security Compliance

Reducing cybersecurity risks to medical devices is essential. Regulators like the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have made improving medical device security a critical focus in recent years.

This means many in the medical device manufacturing community are now rethinking how the software components of their products are secured throughout their product lifecycles.

Don’t Sweat the Threats: Join the NXP webinar on vulnerability monitoring

Don’t Sweat the Threats: Join the NXP webinar on vulnerability monitoring

Security must be a top priority for devices that support critical processes.

Industrial control systems, medical devices, automotive systems and many other embedded systems must be secure. These devices need to be protected from exploits that can compromise system integrity, performance, system availability and the confidentiality of sensitive data.

That’s the focus of an upcoming webinar hosted by …

Security vulnerabilities and medical devices: when the software update itself is the problem

Security vulnerabilities and medical devices: when the software update itself is the problem

A classic security breach vector involves exploiting weak authentication. As security researchers like to point out, failing to change default passwords for administrative access remains the top security issue for all types of IT systems.

But a related — and perhaps more devious — attack vector involves exploiting a weakness in a process that is supposed to help ensure device security in the first place: the remote system update.
