Share Article

First of its kind program will afford hospitals with an economically viable and practical solution for safeguarding medical devices from cyber-attack.

“Our goal is to provide a solution that not only addresses the technical aspects of cybersecurity, but also supports the administrative, operational and compliance concerns faced by provider organizations.”

Sensato Cybersecurity Solutions, the co-founders of the Medical Device Cybersecurity Task Force, has developed Sensato MD-COP (Medical Device Cybersecurity Operations Program) in partnership with ComplyAssistant. Sensato MD-COP is a comprehensive offering specifically designed to protect medical devices deployed in healthcare provider settings. Sensato MD-COP provides hospitals with a dedicated security operations center, medical device breach detection system, medical device cybersecurity risk assessment, medical device cybersecurity policy, medical device manufacturer risk assessment and scoring, on-going threat intelligence and medical device cybersecurity best practices.

The Sensato MD-COP program was created to address the vast need in the healthcare industry for a comprehensive, affordable and proactive medical device cybersecurity program. Based on its work as a founding member of the Medical Device Cybersecurity Task Force, on-going medical device cybersecurity research and in performing medical device cybersecurity assessments, Sensato developed MD-COP to address the most challenging issues facing healthcare organizations in securing their medical devices.

“Sensato MD-COP is designed to work for very small hospitals or provider organizations, as well as scale to extremely large multi-hospital systems across geographies” stated Kelli Watson, Director of Sensato Solutions Delivery. “Our goal is to provide a solution that not only addresses the technical aspects of cybersecurity, but also supports the administrative, operational and compliance concerns faced by provider organizations.”

Aside from providing monitoring, breach detection and other capabilities, MD-COP also allows a healthcare organization to automate the assessment and risk scoring of a medical device. This capability is provided through the unique capabilities found in ComplyAssistant’s software and is a testament to the on-going partnership formed between the two companies.

Gerry Blass, CEO of ComplyAssistant, added this insight into MD-COP, “Medical Device security is a very challenging and complex area and has been lacking a holistic approach. We recognize the problem is not just in addressing the technical security of medical devices, but also requires we arm healthcare organizations with the tools and support to proactively manage risk and their go-forward strategy. MD-COP is designed to be a holistic solution that can be deployed in less than thirty days and most of all it is affordable.”

MD-COP is available directly through Sensato or ComplyAssistant starting January 8, 2018 and through third-party value-added partners starting January 30, 2018. For further information regarding MD-COP please e-mail Kate Macaleer, VP of Operations, Sensato Cybersecurity Solutions at
