Broken Supply Chains Leave Medical Devices Vulnerable to Cyber Attacks

Mar 16, 2022

The White House has recently issued alerts regarding supply chain shortages and the resulting risks. Analysts estimate that it could take years to ensure supply chains are back up and running smoothly. Manufacturers of medical devices are struggling to address this new challenge. Since halting production until supply chains are back up and running isn't an option, many companies are searching for new suppliers. Unfortunately, this workaround comes with its own set of security risks. New and less vetted suppliers might introduce new security vulnerabilities and threats into the product lifecycle.

Read this whitepaper to learn about:

  • The cost of a broken supply chain
  • The new threats supply chain shortages might introduce
  • Vetting open source and third-party code
  • Ensuring medical device security throughout the supply chain
