State of Medical Device Security, a Global Perspective
The healthcare sector is increasingly reliant on medical devices, creating a landscape ripe for cyber risks. This global issue, with sales projected to reach £800 billion by 2030, demands a comprehensive understanding of medical device cybersecurity across the US, EU, UK, and other regions.
What is Medical Device Cybersecurity?
Medical device cybersecurity involves safeguarding internet-connected medical devices and software from cyber threats. This is crucial as the proliferation of devices like implantables and hospital systems heightens the risk of cyberattacks, endangering patient safety and the security of protected health information (PHI).
