How to Develop Safer, More Secure Connected Devices
Custom content for Synopsys by studioID
Medical devices with software components and interconnectivity capabilities have improved patient monitoring, experience, care delivery efficiency, workflow management, and overall clinical outcomes. But, like all network-connected devices, they are worrisomely vulnerable to malicious attacks and privacy violations.
Integrating security into the end-to-end development process is key to shipping fully secure medical devices. This playbook delves into the security challenges facing Medtech developers and examines the best practices and solutions for building safe, secure devices, including why you should:
Integrate security early in the development process rather than as a post-development add-on
Have your development teams undergo security training that teaches them to properly interpret security standards guidelines and documents—and understand the processes needed to apply them
Perform audits during the M&A process to identify, understand and mitigate risks
