INCREASING THE ADOPTION OF STANDARDS-BASED CYBERSECURITY TECHNOLOGIES

INCREASING THE ADOPTION OF STANDARDS-BASED CYBERSECURITY TECHNOLOGIES

This presentation will provide an overview of the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) and the NCCoE Healthcare Sector Team’s recently completed project, Securing Wireless Infusion Pumps in the Healthcare Delivery Organization. The NCCoE, part of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), is a collaborative hub where industry organizations, government agencies, and academic institutions work together to address businesses’ most pressing cybersecurity issues. Through consortia, the NCCoE applies standards and best practices to develop modular, easily adaptable example cybersecurity solutions using commercially available technology. Today’s wireless infusion pumps connect to a variety of healthcare systems, networks, and other devices improving the healthcare delivery processes. Using a medical device’s connectivity capabilities can create significant cybersecurity risk, which could lead to operational or safety risks.
