Following the news that vulnerabilities have been found in Natus Medical devices, Leon Lerman, Co-Founder and CEO at Cynerio commented below.
Leon Lerman, Co-Founder and CEO at Cynerio:
“Healthcare organizations need to be aware that connected medical devices are probably the most vulnerable entities on a hospital’s network, as they were not built with security in mind and it’s extremely challenging to regularly keep them up to date.
Health providers cannot rely on device manufacturers to protect their patients’ data and safety.
Providers first need to make sure they have complete visibility to the medical device ecosystem, understanding the right medical context of the communications and the associated risk. This will enable them to better understand the risks on their clinical environment and will enable them to take proactive actions to ensure their patient safety and data protection.”
