Ben Esslinger,
Clinical Engineering Manager, CBET

"Medical devices are untouched, so to speak, from a mitigation standpoint. MDISS helped us build more realistic testing environments that help us find medical device vulnerabilities and follow best practices for medical device cybersecurity. With patient safety as our shared focus, MDISS initiatives will allow Manufacturers and Healthcare Delivery Organizations to better defend against and mitigate threats to critical healthcare infrastructure."

"MDISS initiatives dramatically improve access to medical device security know-how, while protecting patient privacy and the intellectual property of our various stakeholders. Solid network security governance supports an international-scale network of cyber research and training centers of excellence (like MDISS WHISTL), designed especially for medical device designers, hospital IT, and clinical engineering professionals."

MEDICAL DEVICE RISK ASSESSMENT PLATFORM (MDRAP)

Developed in partnership with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the MDISS medical device risk assessment platform (MDRAP™) helps hospitals and device-makers build, buy and deploy safer medical devices. MDRAP™ is new kind of medical device security profile – one that is quick and easy to complete, clear, concise (and most importantly), actionable. MDRAP™ assessments are deeper, more flexible and more shareable than MDS2’s.
