CyberMDX joins MDISS

Oct. 26, 2018

CyberMDX, a provider of medical cybersecurity, delivering zero touch visibility and threat prevention for medical devices and clinical assets, announced that the company has joined the Medical Device Innovation, Safety and Security Consortium (MDISS), and will drive research in the organization’s security testing lab known as WHISTL. The World Health Information Security Testing Lab (WHISTL) is comprised of a federated network of facilities independently owned and operated by MDISS member organizations that collaborate on best practice development and the sharing of cyber information for patient safety. The WHISTL lab’s focus is on advancing an understanding of secure architecture and its validation.

CyberMDX medical device and security experts are partnering with MDISS and WHISTL labs to develop best practices for the WHISTL Lab network operations manual; the development of best practices for defining and evaluating secure architecture; and training programs to help organizations effectively address the public health challenges arising from cybersecurity issues emergent in complex, multi-vendor networks of medical devices. As part of this effort, CyberMDX will develop standard operating procedures for testing environments and validation methods based on international standards. CyberMDX cybersecurity research experts, who have significant experience in both the public and private sector, will work closely with member HDOs (Health Delivery Organizations) and manufacturers to teach and advance validation for secure architecture.

In addition, CyberMDX will lend its broad industry experience and real-world medical device data analytics and security research to the MDISS platform, which helps protect patients by improving the security and resiliency of connected medical devices. The company will also incorporate MDISS risk analysis data into its CyberMDX MDefend solution—a network-based solution designed to identify, categorize, and protect medical devices and their clinical networks, while supporting hospital IT challenges and workflow.
