Medical devices are increasingly complex systems that exist in complex connected ecosystems of healthcare delivery and are thereby prone to cybersecurity vulnerabilities. For several years, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recognized the value of threat modeling as an approach to strengthen the cybersecurity and safety of medical devices.
To increase adoption of threat modeling throughout the medical device ecosystem, FDA engaged with the Medical Device Innovation Consortium (MDIC), the MITRE Corporation, and Adam Shostack & Associates to conduct threat modeling bootcamps in 2020 and 2021. A playbook based on the learnings from those bootcamps has been developed by this team to further increase the outreach and adoption of threat modeling best practices for medical devices.
In conjunction with Cybersecurity Awareness Month, join us on Oct 19, 2021, 2-3 PM EDT for an interactive webinar on the “Playbook for Threat Modeling Medical Devices,” where speakers from FDA, MITRE, MDIC, and Shostack & Associates will provide an overview on threat modeling and a deeper dive into the Playbook.
