Device Safety and Security

REDUCE CYBER RISKS AND
IMPROVE COMPLIANCE

Defending against cyberattacks is a daily reality for your health system. Whether you are a clinician, biomedical technician, or IT professional, you face constant pressure to keep your medical devices secure and your patients safe. But staying vigilant requires both a full understanding of your clinical asset inventory as well as the knowledge and resources to act decisively when medical device cybersecurity vulnerabilities are detected. Without each of these components, your patients’ safety, your reputation, and your financial health could be in jeopardy.

WHITE PAPER

MEDICAL DEVICE SECURITY: WHERE TO START?

Cyberattacks on the healthcare industry are on the rise, raising the risks and costs associated with your connected medical devices and the data they hold. So where should you start when putting into place a cybersecurity strategy for your health system? Learn more about the critical components of a comprehensive medical device cybersecurity strategy. Learn more.

There is little debate about the reality of and importance of cybersecurity. Yet every health system has unique priorities and tolerance for risk. So how can you determine which vulnerabilities require intervention and your acceptable level of risk? Adopting a one-size-fits-all technology approach can leave health systems uncertain if they are making tangible improvements to risk posture.

Health systems that work with TRIMEDX lower their risk posture by combining unmatched technology, knowledge, and data. Over 50+ years of integrated clinical engineering and cybersecurity expertise are at your disposal to improve processes and reduce risk.

The TRIMEDX CYBER solution delivers unparalleled visibility to connected medical device inventory, access to the most complete content library, and support from TRIMEDX CYBER specialists to facilitate:

  • Full inventory visibility: A comprehensive connected and contactable medical device inventory
  • Monitoring over 40 external sites for vulnerabilities
  • Real-time monitoring and threat detection
  • Complete remediation: Advocacy with OEMs to acquire OEM-validated software patches/compensating controls and unique remediations
  • Propriety content library: Leverage the most extensive content library for proper risk identification and quicker patching or application of compensating controls
  • A centralized team of dedicated TRIMEDX CYBER specialists, certified through the TRIMEDX CYBER Academy’s custom-built curriculum for medical devices and cybersecurity, to aid in vulnerability identification and all aspects of remediation

All data is available through TRIMEDX Clinical Asset Informatics, which provides real-time access to vulnerability status through the vulnerability tracker. Health systems can also request work and monitor progress through the Threats and Projects dashboard and watch the organization’s and each device’s risk dynamically change over time with the TRIMEDX Dynamic Risk Score℠.

TRIMEDX helps prioritize cybersecurity projects based on the proprietary Dynamic Risk Score for each device. The TRIMEDX Dynamic Risk Score℠ is the only score that changes with new and existing vulnerabilities, OEM responses, and real-time device attributes.

The Dynamic Risk Score incorporates information on three dimensions:

  1. Cyber vulnerability risk
  2. Device risk
  3. Patient safety

Benefits

Health systems have more control over their risk posture with TRIMEDX. Health systems can detect, monitor, and remediate the threats and vulnerabilities in their medical device inventories. Objective, data-driven insights drive confident decisions when determining risk tolerance and prioritizing cyber remediation projects. By partnering with a trusted partner with over 50 years of experience in clinical engineering and cybersecurity, health systems can improve their risk posture and better secure the health and safety of their patients and care sites.

Cybersecurity threats can materialize at any time, which is why having the right technology in place for continuous monitoring of connected medical devices is critical. Through the partnership between TRIMEDX and Medigate, clients benefit from real-time monitoring and threat detection. This sophisticated system monitors all network behavior, identifying anomalies in network activity and reducing false alerts.

In addition, the combination of real-time monitoring and the detailed device profile captured for each connected medical device combined with our extensive and propriety content library, allows TRIMEDX to deliver the Dynamic Risk Score. This identifies connected medical devices at the highest risk and provides a recommended plan of action and prioritization through TRIMEDX’s Clinical Asset Informatics.

Benefits

Through continuous monitoring of over 40 external sources, real-time monitoring and remediation of cybersecurity vulnerabilities, the TRIMEDX CYBER solution helps health systems protect the safety of their patients and minimizes the impact of attacks like ransomware, estimated to cost over $8M per incident.*
