What is Medical Device Penetration Testing?
Medical device penetration testing serves as a critical evaluation method for identifying and mitigating vulnerabilities in smart healthcare technology. As healthcare providers increasingly adopt digital solutions, the risk of exposing sensitive patient data or experiencing disruptive security breaches has also escalated. Our services are designed to align with the FDA cybersecurity requirements and NIST Guidance for Health Care Cybersecurity, offering a comprehensive assessment that uncovers actual avenues through which hackers could compromise your medical devices.
In addition to compliance assurance, our medical device penetration testing goes beyond standard vulnerability scanning to offer a multi-layered defense strategy. Utilizing the latest tools and methodologies, we simulate sophisticated cyber-attacks to reveal hidden weaknesses, even in the most secure systems. With a team of certified experts specializing in healthcare cybersecurity, we provide actionable insights and tailored solutions that not only meet but exceed regulatory requirements.
COMPLY WITH FDA’S CYBERSECURITY REQUIREMENTS
The FDA’s Role in Safeguarding
Medical Devices Cybersecurity
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration regulates medical devices and works aggressively to reduce cybersecurity risks in what is a rapidly changing environment. The following medical device cybersecurity awareness video is provided by FDA’s medical device cybersecurity team:
Why Conduct a Penetration Test of Your Medical Devices?
Our services will help your organization achieve compliance with FDA requirements and other industry standards by identifying and helping you fix any vulnerabilities currently present in your smart devices. Once our remediation recommendations have been implemented, we will provide an official attestation confirming that you’ve addressed all risks, helping you meet any requirements with ease and confidence.
Our team will identify all existing vulnerabilities and security risks within your medical devices and their underlying infrastructure, allowing you to systematically address these issues, strengthen your overall security posture and reduce your overall risk exposure.
A penetration test will evaluate the effectiveness of your current security measures, helping you understand whether they are adequate to protect your medical devices from potential threats and improving your ability to prevent attacks.
By simulating targeted attacks in a safe and controlled manner, our penetration testing services will ensure that your medical devices can withstand real-world threats and help develop additional measures to prevent potential disruptions to your patient care, giving you confidence in the security of your devices.
Our team of experts will analyze the potential outcome of a successful breach on your medical devices for each vulnerability and security risk that could be exploited by hackers in a real-world scenario, enabling you to prioritize remediation efforts and allocate resources efficiently.
By uncovering and addressing vulnerabilities, our penetration testing services will help you enhance the security of your medical data and smart healthcare devices, protecting them from potential disruptions that may disrupt patient care or leak sensitive data.
Services trusted by top medical device manufacturers.
When Should You Perform a
Penetration Test of your Medical Device?
Common Cybersecurity Risks & Vulnerabilities Identified
Our methodology covers an extensive attack surface, identifying vulnerabilities that are unique to your medical device, as well as the most commonly found security risks in modern smart devices:
A security risk where attackers exploit weak or unencrypted communication channels between medical devices and other systems, potentially intercepting sensitive data or manipulating device operations.
A security risk where wireless communication between medical devices and other systems is not properly secured, enabling attackers to intercept data, inject malicious payloads, or disrupt device functionality.
Insufficient Access Control is a security vulnerability specific to medical devices where inadequate safeguards allow unauthorized users to gain access to sensitive functionalities. This opens the door for potential exploitation, endangering both the integrity of the device and the safety of patient data.
A security risk where medical devices or their associated data are stored in improperly configured cloud environments, leaving them vulnerable to unauthorized access, data breaches, or other malicious activities.
A vulnerability that occurs when sensitive data, such as patient information, is stored or transmitted without proper encryption, making it easier for attackers to intercept, access, and misuse the data.
A vulnerability that exists when medical devices are deployed with insecure default settings or configurations, potentially exposing them to unauthorized access or other security risks.
