Bradley attorney Steve Snyder was quoted in Home Health Technology News on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s increased emphasis on cybersecurity in the wake of a report by the Office of the Inspector General that found the agency could be doing more to ensure the safety of medical devices during its premarket approval process. Like the FDA, industry experts believe that cybersecurity for medical devices is a shared responsibility among device manufacturers, providers, consumers and the FDA itself.
“As companies are drawn to connect more devices to provide a higher standard of care it is critical that they appreciate the stakes of making sure the devices are secure,” said Snyder. “The industry could benefit from a focused approach and information sharing on threats and best practices.”
