The need to protect patient data and programmes from cyber-attacks is now widely accepted, as the manipulation of medical applications can potentially put patients, medical staff or third parties at life-threatening risk.
When operating DiGA, it is also important to always keep an eye on the current security status. For example, almost every major update of the operating system requires technical adjustments to DiGA.
However, the introduction of an information security management system as required by DIGAV is not sufficient on its own.
The same applies to technical security standards, which are always evolving. The EU Medical Devices Regulation (MDR), which has been in force since May 2021, anchors cybersecurity in the essential safety and performance requirements and demands the state of the art here. But what is the state of the art? The presentation will highlight best and new practices for cybersecurity that manufacturers can use to improve the security of DiGAs throughout their lifecycle.
