Abstract

The increasingly close connection between medical devices and computer networks has given rise to novel cybersecurity threats. Due to the elevated number of connected medical devices, this means that more opportunities for security vulnerabilities exist. To safeguard against cybersecurity breaches in medical devices, understanding the complex nature of the operational surroundings is essential, and knowing about each technical susceptibility is valuable. The purpose of this paper is to discuss a network model of medical devices. Security vulnerabilities in the devices, as well as potential methods of attack, were examined. A solution is provided to improve the security of IT systems, due to essential role medical devices play in patient outcomes.
