Description / Abstract:

Introduction

Medical imaging devices, like all computer systems, are subject to risks that might harm the software, hardware, or data security of the device. As devices become increasingly connected to networks, security risks move beyond the system to intrusions across digital networks. Advancing cybersecurity measures within healthcare and public health relies upon a ‘whole of community’ approach, requiring manufacturers, installers, service staff and healthcare providers alike to accept shared ownership and responsibility. MITA seeks to foster collaboration such that current and emerging threats can be appropriately addressed across the life cycle of imaging devices—from design to installation through end of life.

NEMA recently published a similar white paper that identifies a set of best practices and guidelines that electrical equipment and medical imaging manufacturers can implement during product development to minimize the possibility that bugs, malware, viruses, or other exploits can be used to negatively impact product operation.

We believe the adoption of best practices and standards by manufacturers and healthcare providers presents the clearest line of defense.
