Cybersecurity for Connected Medical Devices offers comprehensive coverage on all aspects of medical device cybersecurity, with a focus on technologies and processes. Sections explain why medical device cybersecurity is important and how it’s different from traditional IT security, introduce medical device and cybersecurity concepts, review regulations, survey different standards that impact cybersecurity for medical devices, and introduce a method for integrating the elements of a cybersecurity program into a traditional medical device quality organization. Finally, the book demonstrates how a cybersecurity development lifecycle can be integrated with the classical ‘product development lifecycle management’ process typically used in medical device companies.

In conclusion, the author reviews the larger implications of insecure devices, healthcare data breaches, and why securing medical devices is a necessary condition for the security of health IT.
