Cybersecurity -  the Risk Analysis 

The FDA guidance for Management of Cybersecurity in Medical Devices suggests that manufacturers perform a Risk Analysis approach to the cybersecurity management of there devices.  Promenade Cybersecurity experts can assist you through the process, identifying and documenting the risks from your device's potential threats and vulnerabilities.  We will help you to assess the potential impact to the end-users and patients, if the devices loses functionality or data integrity is compromised. 
If your device can connect to a network,  your device's vulnerabilities may be exploited to breach the security of the network, and that too will be addressed. We will advise you on suitable mitigation strategies to adhere to regulatory expectations, and the risk acceptance criteria established.
