Identify risks and vulnerabilities with cybersecurity technology

Cybersecurity threats are becoming more sophisticated and growing in number year over year. Health systems need to understand the link between informatics and cybersecurity risk monitoring. These technologies can closely monitor device inventories and track new vulnerabilities & threats from reliable sources, so health systems can take responsive corrective actions to develop a true closed-loop remediation strategy. 

Achieving Solutions Faster

Having the right technology in place for maximum visibility of network-connected and connectable medical devices provides the data that health systems need to drive remediation strategies and fully utilize the TRIMEDX CYBER solution and teams. This combination of people, processes, and technology is critical for close monitoring and timely remediation of vulnerabilities.

The Dynamic Risk Score incorporates information on three dimensions:

Medical device attributes

  • Device operating system
  • FDA alerts and manufacturer recalls
  • Capable of storing ePHI information 
  • When and if a connectable device becomes network-connected

Patient safety

  • The risk to patient safety and consequences of a device failure

Unique risk factors of software vulnerabilities

  • Vulnerability criticality as determined by the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS), a national database scoring system
  • The availability of validated OEM patches or other compensating controls
  • Mission criticality of the devices impacted by a vulnerability

Opportunities and Risks: How Medical Devices Are Maintained and Managed

Hospital operating margins are under strain. A shortage of qualified technicians presents challenges. Medical devices increasingly are being connected to the internet while healthcare cybersecurity breaches are rising. Overlooked among these pressures and others is the scope of what a technology-enabled clinical asset management solution provides, research suggests. By combining powerful analytics from advanced informatics and cybersecurity risk monitoring customized to their strategic needs, healthcare systems can curb operating expenses and avoid unnecessary capital expenditures while ensuring medical device availability and supporting overall patient safety.
