Security testing lab for medical devices coming to the UK soon

The Medical Device Innovation, Safety and Security Consortium is set to open a new security testing lab in the UK to address existing cyber security issues in medical devices at healthcare organisations.

The new security testing lab in the UK will run medical devices through tough and realistic test regimes to uncover their security vulnerabilities.

At the same time, the security testing lab (which is otherwise known as WHISTL: World Health Information Security Testing Lab) will also thoroughly vet critical care environments like operating theatres, Intensive Care Units and emergency rooms for vulnerabilities.
