Medical Device Cybersecurity for Engineers and Manufacturers is:

(1) Timely
This book addresses an immediate need within the medical device industry. New cybersecurity guidances, requirements, and expectations are being issued and clarified by local, national, and international regulators and standards organizations at the same time that well-publicized security incidents (such as the still-ongoing hospital impact of 2017’s WannaCry attack, the recent recall of unsecured Medtronic insulin pumps, or the need to mitigate the widespread vulnerabilities such as URGENT/11, Ripple/20, Amnesia:33, etc.) combine to drive growing awareness among patients and health delivery organizations of the risks posed by unsecured or improperly mitigated medical devices. Simply put, medical device cybersecurity is no longer optional.

(2) Unique
This book represents a unique offering within the market. Prior to its publication, there were no cybersecurity how-to guides available specifically for medical device manufacturers. Related texts either address the topic at a high level or are focused on some other aspect of the medical cybersecurity challenge (e.g., Medical Device Cybersecurity: A Guide for HTM Professionals ed. Axel Wirth, et al).

(3) Authoritative
The book’s lead co-authors (Axel Wirth and Christopher Gates) are recognized experts in this field and actively involved in driving the medical device industry forward, including through participation in special interest groups, international standards bodies, and regulatory advisement committees as part of their professional activities. They are joined by contributors from across the medical device cybersecurity industry, including regulatory specialists, private sector professionals, and government analysts.

Brief Overview

“Cybersecurity for medical devices is no longer optional. We must not allow sensationalism or headlines to drive the discussion… Nevertheless, we must proceed with urgency. In the end, this is about preventing patient harm and preserving patient trust.”

A comprehensive guide to medical device secure lifecycle management, this is a book for engineers, managers, and regulatory specialists. Readers gain insight into the security aspects of every phase of the product lifecycle, including concept, design, implementation, supply chain, manufacturing, postmarket surveillance, maintenance, updates, and end of life.

Learn how to mitigate or completely avoid common cybersecurity vulnerabilities introduced during development and production. Grow your awareness of cybersecurity development topics ranging from high-level concepts to practical solutions and tools. Get insight into emerging regulatory and customer expectations. Uncover how to minimize schedule impacts and accelerate time-to-market while still accomplishing the main goal: reducing patient and business exposure to cybersecurity risks.

Medical Device Cybersecurity for Engineers and Manufacturers is designed to help all stakeholders lead the charge to a better medical device security posture and improve the resilience of our medical device ecosystem.
