As medicine evolves, so has information systems & technology containing patient information that supports patient care. In our position paper Cybersecurity, we outline our systematic approach to product security and explain the measures implemented in our devices.
The importance of medical device security
As Your Specialist in Acute Care we understand medical device security is a global healthcare concern. Cyberattacks can shut things down in any industry. But with healthcare – which already lags behind other industries when it comes to cybersecurity – a shutdown can be a matter of life or death. Equipment malfunctions can put patients at risk and theft of hospital and patient data could have repercussions for years. Cyber threats are not going away. Which means your organisation needs to take steps to protect your IT systems, your data, your medical devices and, most importantly, your patients.
We are committed to cybersecurity in hospitals
Networked information technology ensures rapid exchange of information and automated processes. However, it also increases the risk of attacks from cyber criminals. A secure system for you starts with a secure device from us. At Dräger, we have implemented a comprehensive consideration of cybersecurity throughout every stage of the product development cycle. Right from the start of the product development, we design our system architectures to be resilient against cyber threats and confirm these rigorously in professional tests.
