Security and Safety for Embedded Medical Devices – A Brief Overview

Security and Safety for Embedded Medical Devices – A Brief OverviewThe security and safety of embedded medical devices has become one of the top priorities when it comes to designing connected medical equipment. Due to the long design cycles for medical devices, implementation of security measures has received a lower priority and has had to wait for the next generation or two of product releases. That kind of thinking has evaporated – in light of the many recent Internet of Things (IoT) device security breaches.

This white paper explores the topic of security for embedded medical devices, including the types of threats and Functional Safety.
