Security-Conscious Development Mitigates Cyberhacking

From mobile phones to smart refrigerators to connected medical devices, hackers today enjoy an abundance of opportunity. With an average cost in 2020 of $3.86 million per security breach, it is no longer a choice but a necessity to bake in device cybersecurity early in the development process to protect your organization’s reputation, prevent serious legal consequences, and achieve regulatory approval in the case of medical devices.

Mobile Hacking

IoT Devices are More Vulnerable than Ever

Security breaches have increased by 67% since 2014. Our cyber experts offer guidance, support and consultation in key areas to help you safeguard the software powering your connected medical, industrial and consumer devices.

Design & Threat Analysis

  • Threat modeling
  • Design for cybersecurity
  • Vulnerabilities of third-party software components
  • Firewall and potential for side-channel attacks

Platform-Specific Implementation

  • Secure protocols, platforms and middleware solutions related to your device
  • User authentication and credential management
  • Key and certificate management
  • Software update, secure boot and data encryption (at rest and in transit)

Navigating Regulatory Guidance & Standards

  • FDA requirements/other standards feeding into FDA approval
  • Protected health information (PHI) and HIPAA disclosure risk
  • Achieving UL 2900 compliance as a precursor to regulatory approval
  • Penetration testing — planning and scope
  • Documentation structure for approval
