Medical devices are one of the newer targets of cybersecurity attacks. In 2014, the
Department of Homeland Security (DHS) investigated more than 24 suspected
vulnerabilities of this type.
Its Industrial Control Systems Cyber Emergency Response Team (ICS-CERT) reviewed the safety of products such as infusion pumps and implantable hearts. At the 2011 Black Hat cybersecurity conference, a diabetic man demonstrated how easily a wireless insulin pump could be hacked. While the Food and Drug Administration’s new guidelines require cybersecurity functionality to be built into new devices, this still cannot possibly take new and emerging threats into account. Furthermore, a breach into a hospital’s network could put confidential clinical, administrative, and financial records at risk. Cyber breaches in this market are not only inconvenient, but could be life-threatening.
