Talk Title:

Threat Modeling Medical Devices - when our lives depend on it ...


International regulators (such as the FDA) as well as customers and patients are expecting Medical Device Manufacturers to manage and reduce cyber security risks. Threat modeling will become a mandatory technique for medical device manufacturers, to proactively demonstrate secure design and operation of medical devices.

In this webinar we will explain practical use cases, based on real world projects and our experience with Medical Device Manufacturers.

You will learn the basics of threat modeling, to understand what you are building, how to identify threats using the STRIDE method and how to address each threat. We also cover the FDA requirements on “Security by Design”.

We will demonstrate a practical threat model covering all different stages on a CT scanner deployment in a hospital connected to a DICOM network.

At the end we will provide you with resources to start threat modeling, including our OWASP Threat Modeling Playbook and more!
