Four Rubyk-Med Devices

Rubyk-MED for connected medical devices

Secure your connected medical devices communication

“With the increasing integration of wireless, Internet- and network-connected capabilities, portable media (e.g., USB or CD), and the frequent electronic exchange of medical device related health information and other information, the need for robust cybersecurity controls to ensure medical device safety and effectiveness has become more important. 

In addition, cybersecurity threats to the healthcare sector have become more frequent and more severe, carrying increased potential for clinical impact. Cybersecurity incidents have rendered medical devices and hospital networks inoperable, disrupting the delivery of patient care across healthcare facilities in the U.S. and globally. Such cyber attacks and exploits may lead to patient harm as a result of clinical hazards, such as delay in diagnosis and/or treatment” FDA, September 2023

Increased connectivity has resulted in individual devices operating as single elements of larger medical device systems. These systems can include healthcare facility networks, other devices, and software update servers, among other interconnected components. Consequently, without adequate cybersecurity considerations across all aspects of these systems, a cybersecurity threat can compromise the safety and/or effectiveness of a device by compromising the functionality of any asset in the system. 

As a result, ensuring device safety and effectiveness includes adequate device cybersecurity, as well as its security as part of the larger system. connected equipment brings many benefits to operations and management. However, the connectivity also comes with cyber-security risks to the equipment and the organizational network. 

When operating connected medical devices assets, you need to consider the following:

  • Does the device have its own security measures?

  • Can the device be accessed by an unauthorized user from the network, or even the external internet. What are the risks of such unauthorized access?

  • In the unfortunate event of compromising the device, what is the threat from the device to other devices and the network?

Now you can protect your medical devices and your network, upgrading your equipment security significantly and economically.
