Taskforces: Biomedical Device Security Taskforce
Group Pages


The taskforce requests participation from:

  • Healthcare system staff representing:
    •  IT security
    •  clinical engineering
    •  procurement and legal departments
  •  Biomedical device manufacturers
  • Anyone involved in securing biomedical devices


Taskforce will be tasked to develop specific deliverable templates:

  • Develop a governance structure, specifically by suggesting language that would go into the Environment of Care Manual
  • Develop a draft facility security plan template that defines where biomed equipment may be stored or charged
  • Develop an asset management structure, with a focus on the minimum fields needed to assess risk
  • Establish specific device classes, based on risk characteristics that can be used for capital planning purposes, e.g.,:
    •  Keep: Can be patched and secured
    • Keep: Can be secured through compensating controls
    • Keep: Can be secured through isolation
    • Replace: Cannot be secured

This community space provides a forum for active discussions, group updates, success stories, and solutions that affect the healthcare sector.  White papers, tools and other materials created by the group can be posted here and accessed by the group.  Blog space is available to share ideas and a group directory is included to give you quick access to group member contact information.  A calendar is included below that gives you easy access to your workgroup meeting schedule.

We hope you find this community to be a valuable resource for your group!
