Cybersecurity for medical devices is no longer optional. We must not allow sensationalism or headlines to drive the discussion… Nevertheless, we must proceed with urgency. In the end, this is about preventing patient harm and preserving patient trust.


A comprehensive guide to medical device secure lifecycle management, this is a book for engineers, managers, and regulatory specialists. Readers gain insight into the security aspects of every phase of the product lifecycle, including concept, design, implementation, supply chain, manufacturing, postmarket surveillance, maintenance, updates, and end of life.
