FDA Aims to Strengthen Security on Medical Devices

Hosted by

As American medicine becomes more computerized, cybersecurity is an increasing concern. Pacemakers, fetal monitors, and computers used to view XRays and CT scans are subject to malicious hacking. Incidents that used to occur once or twice a year are now happening monthly or even weekly. So today, the FDA asked medical device makers to fortify their products against hackers and malware. Christopher Weaver covers medical technology for the Wall Street Journal.
