IEEE Cybersecurity Releases “Building Code For Medical Device Software Security”

IEEE Cybersecurity

IEEE Cybersecurity has announced the release of ‘Building Code for Medical Device Software Security’, a building code for software security that will reduce or eliminate the vulnerabilities from malicious attackers. Authored by leading security research scientists Carl Landwehr and Tom Haigh, this ‘Building Code for Medical Device Software Security’ provides a set of guidelines to help companies set up a secure baseline for software development and production practices of medical devices.

“Similar to building codes that were developed over centuries to guide the production of physical buildings, the elements contained in Building Code for Medical Device Software Security are intended as the beginning of a model code for software security for the medical device industry,” said Carl Landwehr, IEEE Fellow and Research Scientist, Cyber Security Policy and Research Institute at George Washington University.

“This is just a starting point that developers can use to rule out the most commonly exploited classes of software vulnerabilities during the implementation phase. There is more work to do, so we encourage the industry to participate in our effort to create a foundation for a more complete code for the medical device industry to apply.”

Keeping in mind the threats to Cyber security, which is becoming a big business now, ‘Building Code For Medical Device Software Security’ has been released. In near future, IEEE will be tackling various aspects of security, including those in computer security education, a building code for security critical software, among many others, the website notes.
