Manipulation of data, loss of intellectual property, direct patient harm…Tom Watts, Engineering Consultant at Team Consulting, talks cybersecurity challenges and connected medical devices in a new article for International Pharmaceutical Industry (IPI).


Medical device developers are increasingly taking inspiration from how consumer products use connected technology, realising the benefits of smarter devices for patients, POC workers, and manufacturers. While these technologies can help to increase the functionality of devices, they can also open them up to cyber-threats. In his article, Tom looks at ways to identify common risks and vulnerabilities in medical devices and how to defend against them, to help put you on the right development path.
