Network-connected and standalone devices pose a cybersecurity risk, increasing risks to patient health, safety, and information. An effective cybersecurity strategy provides visibility into external threats and device vulnerabilities throughout the device infrastructure and enables the understanding of the potential impact of an attack and effective ways of identifying and remediating the threat. Key components of cybersecurity analysis include device architectural assessment and threat model development.

Topics covered include:
  • How to break down a device into smaller blocks/elements for analysis of data for use by cross functional teams
  • An example multi-layered threat model that identifies assets and potential threats
  • Analysis of use cases demonstrating scenarios for manufacturing, servicing, and normal operation
