FDA recommends Threat Modeling as Cybersecurity Risk Assessment methodology
The FDA introduces new regulation that requires ‘security by design’ for Medical Device manufacturers. In this regulation, the FDA will establish rules on how to handle cybersecurity threats, specifically requiring ‘Threat Modeling’ to map and mitigate those threats.
Creating a secure device is partly about simply adopting more secure technology. But it is just as much about introducing strong principles of security best practices to the product development lifecycle, to create ‘security by design’. It’s all about the process. Secure design needs a mature Cybersecurity Risk Assessment methodology. Threat Modeling is such a methodology, and a powerful, simple and practical one.
Get started with Threat Modeling
If you are a leader in Medical Device Manufacturing (MDM) or in a Health Delivery Organization (HDO) and you want to know how to use Threat Modeling to introduce security in your development, then we’ve got good news for you.
We’ve created a whitepaper, in collaboration with experts from the medical device community, to highlight how Threat Modeling can be applied in your field. This whitepaper will help you to:
- Recognize where Threat Modeling fits into risk management processes for developing medical device systems.
- Improve understanding of Threat Modeling: when to do it, how it works, and the insights it brings.
- Build a game plan to get your organization started with Threat Modeling.
- Get access to resources for more in-depth training.
