Medical devices increasingly depend on software. While
this expands the ability of devices to perform key
therapeutic and diagnostic functions, reliance on
software inevitably causes exposure to hazards of
security vulnerabilities. This article uses a recent
high-profile case example to outline a proactive
approach to security awareness that incorporates a
scientific, risk-based analysis of security concerns
that supports ongoing discussions with patients about
their medical devices.
