Irdeto: Your IoMT Cyber Shield


Maximizing Patient Safety, Meeting Regulations, Minimizing Medical Device and Health Data Compromise

IoT Revolutionizes Healthcare 


The advancement of Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) technology is remodeling the way the healthcare industry works by enabling new business models and inspiring cutting-edge ideas for product innovation and service extension. For patients and healthcare professionals (HCPs), the IoMT improves diagnosis accuracy and streamlines therapy delivery using integrated platforms, which leads to real-time patient care while reducing costs.

Cyber Threats to the Medical Industry are Rising


The transition from traditional to connected healthcare is not painless. The number of cyberattacks on IoT devices has sky rocketed in recent years, shown by a staggering  300% increase in the number of observed attacks in the first half of 2019 alone, compared to the second half of 2018. Over the next decade, it is estimated that 50 billion connected medical devices will be deployed throughout clinical systems, which demonstrates the size of the opportunity, as well as the threat. A successful cyberattack on a medical device can not only compromise critical data, but also put the lives of patients and users at risk.

Timeline of Key Events:

Indeed, the rate of cyberthreat incidents has increased in the last few years forcing governments and regulators to react:

The first FDA pre-market guideline for management of cybersecurity in medical devices was published in October 2014.

FDA post-market management of cybersecurity in medical devices guidelines was published in December 2016.

The draft of the new FDA pre-market guideline for management of cybersecurity in medical devices was released on October 2018.

Health Canada’s Pre-market Requirements for Medical Device Cybersecurity came into effect in June 2019.

International Medical Device Regulators Forum (IMDRF) updated a new draft for Principles and Practices for Medical Device Cybersecurity in October 2019.

The EU’s Medical Device Regulation (MDR) including cybersecurity requirements will be applied in 2020.
