Medical device cyber security trends

In the quest for medical device innovation, don't forget cyber security.

In today’s changing medical device landscape, with current guidelines and developing regulations, understanding technical requirements impacting the medical device industry is only part of the equation.

Similar to other industries, medical device manufacturers must detect signals of change and capitalize on disruptors before their products become obsolete.  They must also be attuned to marketplace accelerators that could propel their products to new levels.

An often-neglected aspect of the quest for innovation is the need for a multi-year cybersecurity and technical risk plan.  Such a plan must align with organizations’ business goals and objectives, as well as their strategic direction.
